Dubai Municipality launches robot lifeguard on public beaches
(5 September 2016)


Dubai Municipality has for the first time in the Middle East, launched a robot as a rescuer on public beaches for the security and safety of beach-goers in the emirate of Dubai. 

Alya Al Harmoudi, Director of the Environment Department at DM, said, "The move is also in response to Dubai government directives to keep up with the latest technologies and innovations in this area as well as to ensure that all the necessary requirements and precautions are in place to enhance the rescue operations on the public beaches of Dubai." 

The robot, which can reach a speed of 35 Kph, or approximately 12 times the speed of a human lifeguard, works by using remote control technology. It is 125 cm tall and can travel a distance of more than 130Kms. The robot can float freely as it weighs only 11 kg and can carry out up to 30 rescue operations without re-charging.
