The ninth annual Design Challenge was hosted at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and it provides a unique glimpse into what the future of automotive technology may hold. The big takeaway from this year was the number of people who believe that the future of traffic law enforcement will hinge on autonomous vehicles, basically drones that can monitor California roadways as soon as 2025. Honda came up with a concept known as the California Highway Patrol Drone Squad, wherein different types of four wheel and two wheel drones could be used for various enforcement and rescue purposes. BMW came up with a system where an officer could deploy a ground or air drone to chase after vehicles and bring them to a halt via electromagnetic pulse.
