Robots are automated entities who have been programmed with artificial intelligence.
The AI-backed robot with Dubai Police is a case in point. It features a computer touchscreen on its chest that can be used to report a crime or enquire about speeding tickets.
It answers queries from residents and helps tackle their issues.
Now, thanks to another robot, designed by a Dutch consultancy, cleaning up rubbish littered on the ground, either on the road or a beach, is a breeze.
The Dutch TechTics revealed a new robot named “BeachBot” to clean up beaches of trash such as cigarette stubs and discarded bottles among other things.
The new robot can help identify the ends of cigarettes.
To be able to distinguish the cigarette ends accurately, it needs to preview about 2,000 different images of cigarette ends thrown away by people.
The prototype of the robot can work continuously for an hour, then it is recharged.
RoboCafe has been in the works for more than two years, but its launch was delayed from March 2020 due to the pandemic. It finally opened last June, when restrictions in the UAE were relaxed.

The authority explained that the robot pumps large quantities of water from 1500 litres to 4,500 litres per minute in the regular system and water spray system.
Scientists have long envisioned building tiny robots capable of navigating environments that are inaccessible or too dangerous for humans -- but finding ways to keep them powered and moving has been impossible to achieve.
Data and artificial intelligence (AI) are expected to become key pillars that will build and grow the UAE’s digital economy in the future, adding a major boost to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP)
