A California man has built a robot that he hopes will take some of the danger out of traffic stops. The GoBetween robot is attached to a rod that extends forward from an officer’s car to a motorist’s window, enabling the officer and the motorist to communicate with one another without leaving their vehicles, reported NBC News

Designed for traffic stops, GoBetween includes a tablet screen, webcam, signature pad, and a small printer to issue citations. It does not carry weapons.

GoBetween rolls up to the driver’s side window of the motorist and becomes the officer’s eyes, ears, and mouth. A spike strip automatically placed in front of the car’s rear wheels keeps the motorist from driving away until the traffic stop is completed.
