You've locked your car and even outfitted it with an alarm system. That means it's safe, right? Think again. A team of European scientists has developed tiny autonomous robots that can lift up your car and take it away.

Luckily, criminals are probably the only ones that have to worry about losing their cars to these little robots. The scientists created the machines to aid law enforcement agencies when they have to move a car.

According to its website, Avert can help the police extract suspicious vehicles from within buildings and other tight places, or transport cars they suspect are rigged with explosives to a safer location.

The team of robots are called Autonomous Vehicle Emergency Recovery Tool, or Avert for short. It's made up of small robots that can move a vehicle that weighs up to two tons.
