Dubai’s First ‘Robocop’ Begins Patrolling Streets

Robocop is officially here - as the world's first robotic policeman is now in action in Dubai.

Plans are laid for the new robotic officers to make up to a quarter of the police force in the United Arab Emirates by 2030.

The autonomous Robocop entered the line of duty on Sunday by greeting guests and patrolling the halls at the three-day Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference (GISEC). Plans are in place to have the machine on the streets in popular Dubai areas when the expo ends on Tuesday evening.

Brigadier-General Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi, Director-General of Smart Services with the Dubai Police said:

With an aim to assist and help people in the malls or on the streets, the Robocop is the latest smart addition to the force and has been designed to help us fight crime, keep the city safe and improve happiness levels.

The Robocop, which stands 5'7" (1.7 m) and weighs 220 lbs (100 kg), can not only read facial expressions, but is also fluent in six languages.

“The launch of the world’s first operational Robocop is a significant milestone for the Emirate and a step towards realizing Dubai’s vision to be a global leader in smart cities technology adoption,” said Brigadier-General Razzouqi.

The robots are all part of Dubai's long-term vision - of a fulling self-sustaining city of the future. We can't wait to see what they come up with next!
