Autonomous Police Cars
The Bmw E-Patrol Keeps Highways Safe Using Drones

By: Michael Hines (Superstar) Dec 18, 12

The E-Patrol was BMW’s entrant into the 2012 LA Auto Show Design Challenge. The theme for the 2012 contest was futuristic CHP (California Highway Patrol) vehicles for the year 2025. The E-Patrol was created by BMW DesignworksUSA. The concept is intended to use as little police as possible to produce as many cars as possible.

The best part about the E-Patrol is that it can release up to three drones at once. The drones can either be flying drones or one-wheeled pursuit vehicles. The drones would be controlled from inside the E-Patrol; the car has room for two people. Removing cop cars from the road is a good from both a financial and environmental standpoint. Here’s hoping the E-Patrol’s drones don’t come equipped with sensors to detect traffic violations!
