Motorbike Drone Fighting Street Crime

Justice is coming from the sky in Dubai with a Russian-inspired motorbike drone.

Motorbike Drone Fighting Street Crime

A drone-cross-hoverbike is the new weapon for fighting crime, Dubai police have revealed. The high-tech device is the product of a collaboration between Dubai police and Russian drone manufacturer Hoversurf, RT reports.

With a fully charged battery, the motorbike drone can operate for nearly half an hour and reach speeds of 70km/hr. Four propellers enable the machine to fly 5 metres above the ground, or 6 without a rider.

While the drone was initially created as an “extreme sports instrument”, Dubai police are harnessing its ability to fly by altering direction and altitude to fight street crime and reduce conflict.

Dubai police are planning on adding to their futuristic crime-fighting weaponry, with self-driving police cars expected to be operating in 2018.

Earlier this year, the first robot policeman began patrolling the city streets. Dubai’s Robocops were employed to “assist people in the malls or on the streets.” Brigadier-General Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi claims the machine is “designed to help us fight crime, keep the city safe and improve happiness levels.” Al Razzouqi added that Robocop can “chat and interact, respond to public queries, shake hands and offer a military salute.”
