What next??  Maybe a smart phone? 

Now don't be facetious BTB1977. This is cutting edge technology at it's best. In fact, I think the Thai immigration should invite other countries to share this state of the art technology. They could also offer supply of this smart car and training on how to use it.

Look very clever, doesn't it. But the very "brain" of the immigration is where they keep all the billions of copies foreigners have to submit every now and then. Computers simply can't beat a document with a stamp.

What's the point of employing a "smart car" to the borders? There are already immigration computer systems in place that's why they're immigration checkpoints! Unless this ridiculous idea speeds up processing at the borders (which can be dreadfully slow, mainly when entering the country, less so when leaving) then this makes zero sense whatsoever. Also, do these cars have the right to enter the neighboring country? probably not, as I don't think Malaysia or Myanmar would allow them in.

Not sure how the laptop is fixed, but it is in the most stupid place right in front of the dashboard air bag.  If the vehicle is involved in a front end crash and the air bag deployed, the passenger will most likely be decapitated.  SMART car!

Nothing new about these cars.  When doing my 90 day report in January, at Nakhon Pathom, there were 3 of them parked outside the office.

 

What is interesting is what is mounted on the roof behind the emergency light bar.  Its a tilt/pan/zoom CCTV camera which is connected to an on board computer that is linked to Immigration's main database and facial recognition system.

 

At a later date I spotted one of these cars parked outside a nearby food factory, which  employs a large number of migrant worker, just before the shift was about to end.   No doubt looking for workers exiting who may not be registered or have work permits.
