Dubai is the commercial capital of the oil-rich United Arab Emirates in the Persian Gulf. But officials want to turn it into the world's "smartest" city.
Earlier this year, Dubai announced plans to be the world's first city to use self-flying taxis. In June, it placed the first robot police officer at shopping centers and places popular with visitors.
Dubai police officials now say they plan to deploy self-driving vehicles to patrol city streets by the end of the year.
Dubai will be the first in the world to deploy the O-R3 vehicle, according to the Singapore company that builds it. The company, OTSAW Digital, recently signed an agreement with the Dubai Police force to supply the driverless robots.
The vehicles look a lot like most other automobiles, but are much smaller. They are equipped with cameras, machine learning tools and 3D technology to help them operate independently. The robots automatically charge themselves when power gets low.
The vehicle's cameras can scan faces and record registration information to check for criminals and possible illegal activity. A police official said the robot can recognize people in any area. It will be used to "identify suspicious objects" and follow suspects.
We seek to augment operations with the help of technology such as robots, said Dubai's police chief. We always search for the best technology to serve our police work for a safer and smarter city.
The O-R3 can communicate with computers at police centers in different locations. The patrolling robot is able to send data and video to the centers, where operators can control the vehicle remotely.
The vehicles can also work together with drones that can be launched from the back of the robot. The drones can then follow the vehicle and provide support from the air.
The CEO of OTSAW Digital, Ting Ming Ling, says the use of such vehicles is designed to help humans with their jobs, not replace them.
Ultimately, robots exist to improve the quality of human lives - where men take on high value jobs while robots perform the low skilled ones, he said.

Caffeine can augment this effect -- increasing our amount of available fuel.
Ultimately, you need to have something that would attract another person.

2."This is a clear commitment towards reducing our carbon footprint, as well as contributing to a better air quality in our cities.

The fundamental goal of air pollution control is to improve air quality and protect public health and the environment.
It's unclear whether government vehicles have a huge negative impact on Beijing's air quality.
今年年初，迪拜宣布计划成为世界上第一个推行自动飞行的空中出租车的城市 。今年6月，迪拜又在各大购物中心和游客量大的地方安置了首批机器人警察 。
迪拜将成为世界上第一个部署O-R3机械警察的城市，这是建造它的新加坡公司的原话 。这家名为OTSAW Digital的公司最近与迪拜警方签订了一份协议，为其供应这种无人驾驶型的机器人 。
这种机器人看起来与其他无人驾驶汽车非常相似，但体型更小 。上面装配了摄像图、机器学习工具和3D技术，来实现它们的独立运作 。这种机器人会在电量过低时给自动给自己充电 。
其摄像头可以扫描面部并记录注册信息，这样便可识别罪犯和可能的非法活动 。一位警官表示，这种机器人在任何地方都可以进行人别，所以，以后会用它来“识别可疑物体”，以及追踪嫌犯 。
我们打算在类似于这种机器人技术的帮助下加大警力运作，迪拜警察局长如是说道 。我们一直都在寻找最好的科技来服务警察的工作，让城市更安全、更智能 。
O-R3能在不同的地方与警局中心的电脑进行交互 。这种巡逻的机器人警察可以向警局中心发送数据和视频，这样，警局中心的操作员就可以远程控制这种机器人了 。
这种机器人还可以与无人机联手合作，将无人机从其背部发射出来 。而无人机可以跟着它，在空中为其提供支持 。
OTSAW Digital的首席执行官Ting Ming Ling表示，用这种机器人的初衷是帮助人类更好地完成工作，而非替代人类 。
