Dubai Police Home made Smart patrol car with facial, licence plate recognition system
The futuristic patrols were named 'Ghiath' by Sheikh Hamdan.
The Dubai Police will add 400 Ghiath smart patrols to its fleet over the next five years. Lieutenant-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, commander-in-chief of the force, said the Dh196 million deal will see the made-in-UAE patrols hit Dubai streets soon.
The Ghiath features a 360-degree camera, eight exterior surveillance cameras, and a facial and licence plate recognition system.
Inside, the patrols have an integrated 16-inch central screen, a powerful onboard computer linked to the main control centre, a large passenger display, an android tablet connected to the dispatcher, a driver behaviour camera and in-cabin monitoring.

A prototype of the Ghiath made its debut at GITEX 2018 – where it was given its name by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.
Ralph R. Debbas, founder and chief executive officer of W Motors, said: “We are proud to have delivered the first Ghiath smart patrols to Dubai Police. This is a milestone not only for W Motors, but for the UAE’s automotive industry as we pave the way for manufacturing high-tech and pioneering vehicles locally. From design and engineering to innovative software development, with Ghiath we have created a state-of-the-art security vehicle that is now ready for duty. This is only the start of our partnership with Dubai Police, with many more exciting collaborative projects yet to come.”
W Motors, the carmaker behind the artificial-intelligence-aided ‘Ghiath’, say it is one of the most advanced police vehicles in the world.
