China just stepped up its effort to use technology to police the country deploying traffic robots to help law enforcement in the city of Handan in China's Hebei province. Xinhua, the state-sponsored news agency reported a team of robots has been deployed to assist traffic police in patrolling, providing citizens with information and offering up accident alerts. The artificial intelligence robots have sensors that enable them to move autonomously in every direction similar to a human. These robots can take photos of cars that violated parking rules, verify driver's licenses and even direct traffic. The government plans to use the robots 24 hours a day, deploying them in public locations including train stations and airports.
