Dubai Police introduces AI Powered Vehicle to Monitor Criminal Activity and Visa Violators

Dubai: Police will receive alerts about criminal activity and visa violations from a new AI-powered car.

Additionally, the vehicle would aid in apprehending individuals living in the nation illegally after overstaying their visas.

Thanks to the Dubai Police‘s embrace of innovation and artificial intelligence, Dubai is already one of the safest cities in the world and will only get safer for both locals and tourists.

Police are planning to introduce completely autonomous and AI-equipped cars that can scan license plates and faces and notify the authorities when necessary, making the city’s roadways and streets even safer.

The automobile will travel around the city’s community areas and use facial recognition and vehicle number plate scanning that is connected to the systems to notify the authorities about anyone who is wanted by the police and about cars that are not registered. Additionally, the car would aid in the capture of those who are living in the nation illegally after overstaying their visas.


The vehicle is displayed at the Dubai World Central venue at the Dubai Police booth during the ongoing Dubai Airshow 2023. On Friday, November 17, 2023, the Airshow will continue.

The AI-driven vehicles also alert the police in case of a suspicion and a certain number of police vehicles need to be deployed on a certain location or area,” said a senior official at the Dubai Police stand.
