I know the robots in question are drones controlled by people so it’s not the same as an autonomous robot but I’d honestly rather deal with an autonomous robot than some fascist cop. My area has been installing a lot of red-light and speed cameras on busy roads over the last decade and while it’s got a bit of a dystopian vibe about it, it encourages more honest traffic conditions and eliminates encounters with law enforcement in place of getting a ticket in the mail. An autonomous robot that could potentially make a decision to kill me sounds pretty scary, but there is more than enough evidence to show that having a human in that role can go quite poorly as well.
