Today, cars are computers on wheels. In sub-department 31.4 (vehicle technology and automotive IT) at the LZPD Duisburg, department head Thomas Franta and his 19-strong team are exploring the many possibilities for police work that have been opened up by vehicle-related information technology. The aim is not to follow developments, but to set standards themselves.
