The first Robocop operative who can speak six languages has started working as a police officer in Dubai. The world’s first operational “Robocop” began its mandatory tour Sunday in Dubai, the first in the planned robotic police of the emirate. The Robocop, five feet five inches tall and weighing 220 pounds, speaks six languages and reads facial expressions.
Brigadier-General Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi, Director-General of Smart Services with the Dubai Police told us.
Residents can use the Robocop to pay fines or report crimes, and it also can transmit and receive messages from police headquarters. The launch “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,” Al Razzouqi said.
Dubai appears to be bracing up for the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be hosted by Qatar, the first to be held in the middle east and in an Arab and a majority-Muslim country.
