If Ford has its way, a robot could write your speeding ticket in the very near future.
The firm recently filed a patent for an autonomous ‘Robocop’ car that can catch speeding drivers by hiding behind trees and buildings.
Now, the patent has provoked the ire of both law enforcement and autonomy experts who say the conceptual cop car could raise privacy issues, as well as concerns about abuse of power, among other criticisms.
