That’s not to say that a giant robot will be hunting down those who break the law – it’s more likely that administrative, clerical and customer service functions will be increasingly performed by robot.
Dubai Police’s idea of the self-driving car, code-named O-R3, is to head into specific areas to collect data and information using cameras and sensors. The car will be capable of detecting suspicious objects, follow suspects and launch aerial drones if it is unable to reach certain areas.
We can’t wait to catch the first glimpse of the self-driving car hitting the streets.
The RTA has also announced thatself-flying aerial taxis will be trialled in the Dubai skies this year, so there is a precedent for autonomous vehicles already.
