Dubai, known for its commitment to innovation and cutting-edge technology, is set to elevate its safety standards with the introduction of fully autonomous and AI-equipped police vehicles.

The initiative, showcased at the Dubai Airshow 2023, is a testament to the city’s dedication to ensuring the well-being of residents and visitors.


The autonomous vehicles, named MO2 and manufactured in collaboration with Micropolis Robotics, are equipped with state-of-the-art technology designed to enhance surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.

The vehicles boast facial and car number plate recognition, supported by a 360-degree camera view and motion detectors.

This technological prowess allows the police to scan and identify individuals wanted by the authorities, unregistered vehicles, and even those who have overstayed their visas.

A senior official at the Dubai Police Stand highlighted the vehicle’s primary function as surveillance and reconnaissance.

The AI-driven vehicles can detect suspicious activities, automatically alerting the police to deploy resources as needed. This strategic deployment ensures a rapid and effective response to potential security threats.

The vehicle’s capabilities extend beyond traditional patrolling, as it contributes to tracking down individuals residing in the country illegally.


The integration of facial and car number plate scanning linked to the police systems facilitates a comprehensive approach to law enforcement, reinforcing Dubai’s status as one of the safest cities globally.

Operational for up to 16 hours, MO2 represents a significant leap in law enforcement technology. The authorities have been working on this project for years, with a focus on ensuring that the vehicle operates to its fullest capability.

While the official did not provide a specific timeline, they emphasized that the rollout would happen “soon.”

Autonomous vehicles are poised to revolutionize the patrolling system in Dubai, showcasing the city’s commitment to leveraging technological advancements for the greater good.

By embracing artificial intelligence and autonomous capabilities, Dubai is positioning itself at the forefront of intelligent policing, setting an example for other cities globally.

The unveiling of MO2 at the Dubai Airshow 2023 marks a milestone in the city’s journey toward enhanced security.

As Dubai continues to blend innovation with law enforcement, it reinforces its reputation as a safe haven for residents and visitors alike.

The strategic deployment of AI-driven autonomous vehicles is a forward-thinking approach that aligns with the city’s vision for a secure and technologically advanced future.
