It would seem that difficult to obey the traffic rules? Green – movement permitted. Red – is prohibited. However, there are always those who will violate the traffic rules. And if the drivers are fighting hundreds of cameras and police officers issuing fines to pedestrians difficult to cope. But the Chinese authorities have come up with an original and effective way: a special robot watering violators of water.
An innovative method invented by the police from the city of Daye (Hubei province). According to the publication China Daily, the system is installed on one of the largest urban pedestrian crossings. When the light turns green, the robot informs pedestrians that it is possible to start a movement, but it must be done as quickly as possible and to be mindful of security. The robot also warns that otherwise the pedestrian will be doused with water.
But in that moment, when a pedestrian is trying to cross the road on forbidding signal of a traffic light, the automatic system sprays it with water. Moreover, a person “receives” at the time of exit on the roadway, and the second time when it comes back on the sidewalk. Moreover, the “Robocop” has a camera that captures violator and writes him a ticket. The city authorities are pleased with the result and want to install such robots and other urban transitions. By the way, the cost of equipment for a pedestrian crossing is 200 000 USD.
