After bringing in the Lamborghinis and Ferraris to patrol the roads, Dubai Police have enrolled a robotic officer, the first in a unit that aims to make up a quarter of force by 2030.
Robotic cop stood to attention Wednesday night at foot of Burj Khalifa, World’s tallest tower, as the tourists and the passersby’s snapped selfies by its side.
Wearing police cap and moving on the wheels, robot features the computer touch-screen on its chest that can be used to report the crime or inquire about the speeding tickets.
Brigadier Khaled al-Razzooqi, who is Head of Smart Services at Dubai P0lice, expounded that,”Our aim is to raise number of the robots to 25 percent of police force by the year 2030″.
Robot would be deployed mainly at the tourist spots, and is equipped with a camera that transmits live images to operations room and it can identify the suspects wanted by the Police.
Main purpose is to “find a new way to deal with the people”, added Razzooqi, while acknowledging the fact that the robots could not replace the humans on tasks such as making the arrests.
