Di salah satu persimpangan jalan di kota Kinshasa, Kongo, tak ada lampu lalu lintas. Polisi pun tak terlihat. Tapi, para pengendara tetap disiplin karena ada sebuah robot berdiri di tengah persimpangan.

At one of the intersections in the city of Kinshasa, Kongo, there are no traffic lights. Not even a police officer in sight. But, the drivers keep their discipline because of a robot standing in the middle of the intersection.

Robot inilah yang mengatur lalu lintas. Ia juga merangkap lampu lalu lintas, karena dilengkapi dengan lampu merah, kuning, dan hijau. Ada beberapa kamera yang tertanam di dalam tubuh robot.

This robot is the one regulating traffic. It also functions as a traffic light, because it is equipped with the lights red, yellow, and green. There are several cameras mounted on the robot.

Kamera tersebut berfungsi untuk mengawasi kondisi sekitar. Bila ada pengendara yang melanggar, maka kamera ini secara otomatis akan melaporkannya kepada polisi.

The cameras keep an eye on the surrounding traffic. Should any of the drivers violate, the camera will automatically send report feeds to the police officer.

Robot setinggi 2,4 meter ini dirancang oleh seorang wanita Kongo bernama Isaie Therese. Tubuh robot terbuat dari baja dan alumunium. Sehingga kuat bila terkena cuaca buruk.

This 2.4-meter tall robot was designed by a Kongo citizen, Ms Isaie Therese. The robot’s assembly is made from steel and aluminum. This makes it durable from adverse weather.

Setelah beberapa lama robot ini bertugas, ternyata para pengendara jadi lebih disiplin. Mereka justru lebih takut melanggar lalu lintas saat sudah ada robot daripada polisi. Lho, kok begitu ya, Kids?    

After a while since the robot was on duty, the drivers have become more disciplined. They are more afraid to violate the traffic rules with the robot than having the police around. How can that be, Kids?
