BMW Group DesignworksUSA. The BMW Group’s E-Patrol (Human-Drone Pursuit Vehicle) is designed for a future Los Angeles, predicted  to have more traffic, faster vehicles, and vehicles with alternative fuel sources. The design centered on a modular structure and drone technology. The main structure can deploy three drones. In the case of a pursuit during heavy traffic areas, the patrol officer sitting in the main structure can deploy either the flying drone or one of the single wheel drones to chase the suspect and report back data to the main structure.
