Dubai introduces autonomous electric vehicle to clean beach bike paths

Dubai Municipality began the testing phase of an autonomous electric vehicle dedicated to cleaning cycle routes along the beaches of Jumeirah and Umm Suqeim.

This is part of its efforts to preserve the hygiene and sustainability of all tourism facilities in Dubai, including public beaches, as well as to enhance their beauty and attractiveness by taking advantage of the latest technologies, such as electric and automated cars. In addition to offering unique experiences to Dubai’s beachgoers, the municipality aims to minimize environmental pollutants and carbon emissions using its automated fleet.

Classified as a smart sweeper, the new autonomous vehicle has cutting-edge technological and technical specifications, such as smart sensors that allow it to avoid obstacles, ensuring a higher productivity rate compared to manual cleaning. In addition, it guarantees the ability to work eight hours straight per charge, a maximum speed of 40 kmph in normal mode and is ecological with low carbon emissions.

Dubai Municipality launched five large-scale sweepers with intelligent and advanced technology earlier this year to sweep approximately 2,250 kilometers of fast and outdoor roads in Dubai every day. It has upgraded its automated waste operations management fleet of 752 vehicles with a variety of automatic sweepers and pavement and road cleaning equipment, cutting equipment and large-scale agricultural waste processing and shredding equipment for plantations, public parks and tree waste.

Dubai Municipality had assigned a field team of 12 to supervise 72 cleaners who work regularly and around the clock to keep Dubai’s public beaches clean. She also equipped the team with 13 new mechanisms and equipment to improve communication and emergency response time.
