To dispatch drones across the Emirate to reduce the police response time from 4.4 minutes to just one minute, Dubai Police is showcasing ‘Drone Box’ – a self-monitored platform
Dubai Police is taking the lead as far as autonomous vehicles are concerned — a self-driving patrol car drones to monitor the roads, and skies are all on display at the World Police Summit.
Dubai Police is introducing the latest technologies at the four-day World Police Summit, which commenced at Dubai Exhibition Centre at Expo 2020 Dubai on 14 March to ensure the Emirate remains the safest city in the world.
To make their cities safer, Governments and private groups from the UAE and other countries are showcasing the best of their innovations.
To dispatch drones across the Emirate to reduce the police response time from 4.4 minutes to just one minute, Dubai Police is showcasing ‘Drone Box’ – a self-monitored platform.
The operator can select a pre-programmed mission or click on the Dubai map; the drone will automatically take off to go to the desired location and share visuals with the operator.
It can be integrated within a system and the drone will fly to the location in case of an alert or alarm system and the operator in the control room can view the live feed to know the situation on the ground.
To know the radioactivity at nuclear plants and oil and gas facilities, these drones can also be deployed at industrial sites for inspection.
The drone will recharge for the next mission as soon as it returns to the platform as it is embedded with a self-charge system. The drone, which is developed by the France-based Azur Drones, can fly up to 50km per hour.
Dubai Police and Micropolis Robotics are jointly showcasing autonomous vehicles which could patrol highways and communities across the Emirate.
M01 autonomous vehicle is equipped with a drone, and it will be deployed on the highways to check the speed limits as well as other security purposes.
Equipped with multiple cameras, it also can scan people’s faces and share the data with the relevant authorities.
In case of an accident, to take visuals to assess the situation on the ground, the vehicle deploys the autonomous drones. Including face recognition as well as behaviour analytics, to see the suspect and analyse the individual, this autonomous vehicle is also equipped with multiple cameras.
The smaller autonomous patrol vehicle M02 can be deployed in communities to ensure public safety and security.
Built internally in cooperation between Dubai Police and Metropolis, the vehicles are in the prototype and development stage. The vehicles are set to hit the roads later this year or early next year.
