The latest Nikon patents

After the smart bottle, Nikon has another weird patent for some kind of a device (a camera?) for cars. Maybe Nikon is thinking to get into the self-driving/autopilot car revolution that has been making headlines lately? The patent descriptions is for a “crime preventing” device – in case of an emergency, the car will send images to the police, display a warning message, lock the doors and seatbelt and self-drive itself to the nearest police station.
