Dubai is getting one step closer to Robocop Via engadget:

by the end of the year, the Dubai police plan on deploying a fleet of self-driving police cars that will scan people and identify criminals and “undesirables.”

The driverless car will operate completely autonomously; it will patrol the city on its own and use biometric software to scan individuals it comes across. Officials are hoping that the very presence of the vehicle in an area will be enough to deter crime; it also comes complete with an onboard drone that will be linked to the Dubai Police’s command room for aerial surveillance.

They are equipped with a laser scanner, thermal camera, HD cameras, GPS and lidar in order to navigate, and can additionally utilize these cameras for facial and license plate recognition. While the robot vehicle is fully automated, humans can override the systems and easily take control of the OR-3 if necessary.
