Police in Dubai are adding tiny robot patrol cars to carry out the massive work of catching criminals.

The child-sized bot cars will be dispatched to neighborhoods to boost security as well as hunt for unusual activity, "potential persons of interest to police" and known criminals, Gulf News reported. They will roll out at the end of the year.

The robo-car comes with its own drone — and both the vehicle and drone are linked to the Dubai police command room, the outlet reported.

The announcement comes on the heels of news earlier this year Dubai is employing police bots and is set to become the world's first city to use flying taxis.

Singapore-based OTSAW Digital won the contract for the device known as O-R3 – making Dubai the first in the world to put it into operation, Gulf News reported.

"Dubai Police are keen to get the latest technology to fight crime," said Maj. Gen. Abdullah Khalifa Al Merri, the city police commander in chief, in announcing the rollout plans.

"We always search for the best technology to serve our police work for a safer and smarter city. We seek to augment operations with the help of technology such as robots. We aim for streets to be safe and peaceful even without heavy police patrol."

Added Ting Ming Ling, CEO of OTSAW Digital, "Ultimately, robots exist to improve the quality of human lives, where men take on high-value jobs while robots perform the low-skilled ones."
