DUBAI, UAE, Oct 16: Dubai Police made a groundbreaking announcement at the GITEX Global 2023 tech show, revealing their new self-driving security patrol vehicle designed to enhance safety in residential areas. Lieutenant Rashid bin Haidar, representing the Dubai Police’s General Department of Administrative Affairs, introduced this innovation to the exhibition attendees.

This fully electric patrol vehicle boasts a battery life of up to 15 hours and is capable of reaching speeds of up to 7 km/h, making it ideal for use in residential zones. Its primary objective is to bolster security coverage, and it comes equipped with a high-tech 360-degree camera capable of advanced surveillance. Thanks to its smart technology and artificial intelligence, the vehicle can identify criminal behavior, recognize faces, and read car license plates.

What sets this patrol apart is its direct communication capabilities, enabling real-time contact with the Command and Control Centre at the Dubai Police’s General Operations Department. Notably, the patrol includes an onboard drone, offering access to areas that the vehicle cannot reach, and maintaining wireless communication with the patrol once deployed.

In addition to this autonomous land patrol, Dubai Police also showcased a ‘Luxurious Marine Patrol’ at GITEX. Shaped like a sports car, this marine vessel is designed for rapid responses to incidents on the water, ensuring swift emergency rescue operations. Major General Khaled Nasser Al Razooqi, the director of the Artificial Intelligence Department at Dubai Police, emphasized that these innovations align with the directives of Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-chief of Dubai Police, aiming to demonstrate the latest advancements in security, safety, and rapid incident response.

Brigadier Dr. Hassan Suhail Al Suwaidi, director of Ports Police Station, highlighted the significant role the marine patrol plays in rescue efforts, thanks to its swift response capabilities. With a top speed of 45 knots per hour and an automatic engine with four speeds (1,800cc capacity), the patrol is equipped to accommodate two passengers. Its total weight stands at 320kg, with a maximum weight limit of 625kg, making it a versatile asset for water channels, lakes, islands, and tourist destinations.

Brigadier Al Suwaidi emphasized the patrol’s constant readiness to address various marine reports and emergencies, underlining its vital role in saving lives around the clock.
