The world’s very first “Robocop” began its trip of task Sunday in Dubai– the very first in the emirate’s planned robotic authorities force, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Robocop, 5 feet, 5 inches high and weighing 220 pounds, speaks six languages and reads facial expressions.
“He can chat and interact, respond to public queries, shake hands and offer a military salute,” Brigadier-General Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi, Director-General of Smart Solutions with the Dubai Police told the Mirror.
Residents can use the Robocop to pay fines or report criminal offenses, and it can transfer and receive messages from 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.
“With an aim to assist and help people in the malls or on the streets, the Robocop is the latest smart addition to the force and has been designed to help us fight crime, keep the city safe and improve happiness levels,” he added.
