A highway patrol robot for handling traffic violations is being tested around China.
The luggage-sized robot, controlled by mobile phones, operates on a highway barrier at a speed of 5 km per hour.
A fully charged battery can power the robot for between five to eight hours.
It can capture images and videos of illegal parking or driving in the highway emergency lane, then send the evidence back to the police.
It can also send a voice alert to vehicles in the event of highway congestion, car accidents, road maintenance and bad weather.
