KATHMANDU — Traffic Police Division on Monday launched an Android app ‘Traffic Police Nepal’ to manage traffic movements in the valley.

The app will help road users, pedestrians and drivers better manage city movements, according to police as it updates road users on traffic situations nearby and also helps them find important phone numbers secretly file complaints against traffic rule violators.  This app will also inform the police about accidents, or find a bank in the vicinity.

Launching the app in Nepal Police Club, Bhrikutimandap , Upendra Kanta Aryal, chief of Nepal Police, said “We are not using technology, we are living with technology”.

“With road comes development. But, because of improper management of road, many accidents occur and to minimize them and create awareness, we have launched this app,” he added.

iPhone users will have to wait for a week or so to be able to use the app as its IOS version is under final phase of construction.

The functions included in the app are traffic lights, traffic news, traffic control room number, public eye, find bank, traffic station, important numbers, traffic FM, traffic sign, information and videos.

App users can get information about traffic jams, traffic rules and also watch the videos installed in the app to learn more about traffic police, traffic rules and road management.

“Our main objective is to make traffic more accountable, create awareness, punish rule violators, provide traffic education, minimize road accidents and ensure traffic management,” said IG Aryal.

Previously, police had launched an app called ‘Crisis Call’. This time a different branch of Nepal Police has launched the Traffic Mobile app with some advanced features.

In the 45-second video, titled ‘Hey Buddy, Can You Give Me a Hand?’ a SpotMini walks over to a door before realizing it can’t get through.

Another SpotMini quickly comes to his rescue and extends his clawed arm, which he uses to grab the door handle.

The robot then grabs the handle, turns it, and pulls back the door. Using one of its front legs, the robot manages to hold open the door as the claw releases the handle and pens the door fully.

The SpotMini is seen holding open the door as his fellow robo-dog friend then casually walks through the door.
