Dubai plans for greener, hi-tech future
13 March, 2016
Dubai’s public beaches are about to get much cleaner. The company behind the emirate’s high-tech palm trees is developing self-charging “turtles” to sweep and maintain public areas as part of its portfolio of smart city concepts. The Smart Turtle is a fully automated cleaning device for “soft” public areas, and is programmed to re-power by regularly returning to docking stations that are connected to nearby smart green-energy generators.
