At the GITEX Global 2023, the Dubai Police unveiled its self-driving security patrol aimed at enhancing safety in residential areas. Lieutenant Rashid bin Haidar from the Dubai Police’s General Department of Administrative Affairs introduced the eco-friendly, fully electric patrol vehicle to the exhibition visitors.
The vehicle’s battery lasts up to 15 hours and can reach speeds of 5 to 7 kilometres per hour. Designed specifically for residential zones, the patrol’s main objective is to boost security coverage.
It features an advanced camera with a 360-degree capture capability. Additionally, with its smart technology and artificial intelligence, the vehicle can detect criminal behaviour, recognise faces, and read car license plates.
The patrol is also equipped with direct communication technologies, allowing it to liaise in real-time with the Command and Control Center at the Dubai Police’s General Operations Department.
Lieutenant Rashid noted that the patrol includes an onboard drone. “This drone can access areas the vehicle cannot and maintains direct wireless communication with the patrol once launched,” he said.
