Dubai will police streets with autonomous patrol cars

OTSAW Digital, a Singapore-based company will be building and manufacturing the O-R3 security robots for the city. They are equipped with a laser scanner, thermal camera, HD cameras, GPS and lidar in order to navigate, and can additionally utilize these cameras for facial and license plate recognition. While the robot vehicle is fully automated, humans can override the systems and easily take control of the 0R-3 if necessary. 

The Dubai police department has previously discussed its intention of replacing 25 percent of its police force with robots. Last month, Dubai introduced its first robotic nolice off1cer to the force. With the addition of the 0R-3 vehicles by the end of 2017, Dubai seems to be well on its way to its goal of creating a fully robotic, human-free police station by 2030.
