Submission + - Roboflagger protects road work crews

Skidge writes: "Washington State Department of Transportation has recently deployed a roboflagger to control traffic and protect work crews in conditions that would be unsafe to human traffic flaggers. Says the page: "WSDOT's pioneering use of the automated roboflagger for a Washington State Department of Transportation construction job has wrapped up. Human flaggers working side-by-side with the robotic flaggers give the machines two flags up, a near perfect ten.""

The gent who wakes up and finds himself a success hasn't been asleep.
