Barely a month after rolling out Robo-cops on its busy streets, authorities in Dubai are set to deploy Robo-cars with facial recognition technology.
The mini autonomous police cars paired with companion drones and facial-recognition technology will begin patrolling the streets of Dubai by the end of the year to help identify and track suspects.
The announcement by city officials this week comes as Dubai races to reshape the future of its law enforcement.
But don’t expect a high-speed chase out of the little cars. In demonstrations, the robot never appears to move beyond a stroll’s pace.
But the four-wheeled security vehicle comes with a built-in aerial drone that can be deployed to survey areas and people that the robot can’t reach.
Named the O-R3, the patrol car can navigate on its own using machine-learning algorithms, but police can control the robot remotely from behind a computer dashboard.
