Dubai police unveil motorbike drones for officers

Motorbike drones have been created

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Police in Dubai have revealed some rather interesting technology that will be used to fight crime - drone motorbikes.

The device has been created by Russian drone company Hoversurf in tandem with the police force in Dubai, according to RT.

Officers can ride the motorbikes or they can be remotely controlled. They can also carry extra weight of up to 300kg.

The motorbikes have four propellers, meaning they can fly at a height of up to 5 metres (well above vehicle and pedestrian traffic) and if no one is on board they can reach 6 metres.

A full charge means the drone can be operated for 25 minutes and travel at speeds of up to 43 mph.

However, Hoversurf said the original concept of the flying motorbikes were to use them for extreme sports.​

Dubai will also be implementing miniature self-driving police cars and it has already put robot police officers in place to help people.

Brigadier-General Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi said: the robot police officer "can chat and interact, respond to public queries, shake hands and offer a military salute."

Dubai is often the subject of mockery for its rather strict penal code, which imposes strict punishments on people who hold hands, wear mini-skirts and take photos of buildings. But, if you're going to the country, be careful - else you might find an officer swooping down on you out of nowhere.
