Each base has a sliding roof that allows the drones to enter and exit. The drones can fly pre-programmed patrols, or be dispatched to a specific location, allowing an operator at police headquarters to inspect the scene, or follow a suspicious individual or vehicle and pass data to other police units.
The base station relays communications and incorporates a robot arm to swap out the drone’s batteries, allowing it to land and take off immediately with no delay for recharging.
During my visit to the Dubai Police Headquarters, we launched Drone Box, a platform to dispatch drones across Dubai to reduce response time to criminal and traffic reports from 4.4 minutes to 1 minute. The service will officially launch during Expo 2020 Dubai. pic.twitter.com/jz1niTk7sl— HH Sheikh Mohammed (@HHShkMohd) July 14, 2021
I reviewed the artificial intelligence systems that assign police patrols across Dubai without human intervention and our system of 300,000 smart and round-the-clock surveillance cameras that ensure safe living for our citizens and residents. pic.twitter.com/15hYSevpzX— HH Sheikh Mohammed (@HHShkMohd) July 14, 2021
