Laser DUI Detectors Being Developed
Laser DUI detectors are on the way! Imagine driving down the street and having a police laser passively check your car for alcohol vapors. According to the Huffington Post, scientists at the Military University of Technology in Warsaw, successfully tested the device by aiming its laser at a car passing by at a distance of up to 20 meters. The car’s interior had been filled with alcohol vapor, simulating the exhalations of a drinker inside the car.
If this technology is successful, the laser DUI devices could be employed much like red-light cameras or used by stationary police like radar speed devices are currently being used. The machine could also be used to take a picture of the car to alert police to the driver’s description and/or to see if anyone else (who may be have been drinking) is in the car. Scientists are sure that later modifications can be made to the technology that will allow detection of other chemical compounds like marijuana.
A paper describing the device was published online in the Journal of Applied Remote Sensing on May 19, 2014.
