DUBAI: The General Directorate of Civil Defence in Dubai revealed that civil defence robots will be deployed in malls and airports of the emirate with effect on early August this year.

The world’s first of its type robot ensures safety up to 100 per cent. It is equipped with distinguished specifications and high techniques, and connected to the fire systems in buildings.

The robot monitors fires and moves automatically towards their sources, where it carries out initial attempts to put out flames till the fire fighters arrive.

Lieutenant Colonel, Saif Ali Al Hamour, director of human resources department at the civil defence in Dubai, said that the robot will be displayed in the emirate’s largest mall within the next 3 months.

The remotely controlled robot is supported with unique techniques in terms of heat sensors that monitor fires in its surrounding area and attempt to extinguish it.

 It is also equipped with HD cameras covering all angles to avoid collisions. It further douses fires automatically moving at speed reaching up to 20 km/h and carries tanks for water, foam and powder, Al Hamour added.
