Dubai's 'Robocop' to police emirate in 2 years

Dubai Police plans to launch its first intelligent robot officer  - aka Robocop -  within two years.

The humanoid officer will provide all Dubai Police services to the public in six languages, much like a human policeman.

Director of General Administration of Smart Services at Dubai Police, Colonel Khaled Nasser Al Razzuqi told ‘Emarat Al Youm’ that the ‘Robocop’ will represent a shift in police services and it will be launched in two stages before the start of Expo 2020.

The robot will be linked to non-emergency call centre 901 and it could move swiftly in areas like shopping malls, to interact with people.

He explained that the Robocop will be programed in a smart way that allows it to communicate and provide all information by itself, without human interference.
