Dubai To Launch “Drone Box” To Reduce Police Response Time To Crimes


from ZeroHedge:

Police in Dubai will use quadcopter technology to reduce emergency response time anywhere in the city to help increase security.

Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum tapped Israeli drone company Airobotics for their “Drone Box” platform to help police respond within one minute — instead of 4 minutes 40 seconds to incidents anywhere in the metro area, according to the Government of Dubai.

Airobotics’ website offers some insight into the durability of the new drone.


The official launch is slated for the World Expo in October. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum also tweeted details about the new program.

The Drone Box replaces security personnel with a fast and efficient autonomous drone fleet deployed across the metro at a low cost.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum was also briefed on the “progress of the Oyoon project, an artificial intelligence (AI) program implemented to raise Dubai’s profile as one of the world’s safest cities.”

Dubai Police continue to invest in a surveillance state with more than 300,000 security cameras monitoring the metro area around the clock.
