Residents of the super busy city of Kinchasa, in the country of Congo better watch out as there are some new cops in town.

Giant, solar-powered robots have been installed on the city’s roads to help monitor the busy traffic in the capital city.

The robo-cops let drivers know when it is safe to go by using red and green lights on their rotating arms.

As well as this, they have a number of security cameras on them, which allow the police to keep an eye on the roads and make sure there is no trouble.

Three of the newest robots were developed by a team of women engineers, who hope their robots will be used across the rest of Congo.

Do you think New Zealand needs these extra eyes checking up on our drivers?
