Ministry of Interior showcase latest security vehicle technology at UAE Innovations

The Ministry of Interior showcased the latest in security vehicle technology at the UAE Innovations expo.

The government body let visitors get an up close look at the remote-controlled security vehicle as it declared that it could be used alongside artificial intelligence to be the future of air traffic control.

The UAE Innovations expo runs until Wednesday 16th February and showcases the latest technology from government bodies and private sector companies.

The highlight from the opening day was the Emirates Sniper, a remote-controlled vehicle with an attached gun that can send footage back to a control room in real time. The Ministry of Interior stand showcased the vehicle ahead of its expected roll out for police work. It’s expected to be used in raid operations and for filming at security events.

Another star attraction was the robot receptionist that can greet visitors when they attend hospital. Engineer Vaibhav Yadav said: “It’s already being used in some hospitals in Dubai. The robot will greet you when you arrive and you can ask it questions and it will give you the information you need about which part of the hospital you need to go to.”

The robot costs approximately $40,000, and can be programmed for a whole range of purposes.

Other inventions on show included the AI Planner, from the General Civil Aviation Authority. This tool can process information more quickly than humans, making air traffic flow predictions more precise and reducing the margin for error.
