Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has started testing the different uses of the four-legged Spot Robots in its internal operations, becoming the first utility in the region to use this robot, developed by Boston Dynamics.The move supports Dewa’s strategy to use the latest Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies and adopting Artificial Intelligence (AI) in its different operations.

Dewa intends to use Spot Robots in detecting faults, testing connection points of high-voltage cables, detecting leakage in water pipes, conducting security and monitoring patrols, ensuring construction works are aligned with specifications using multiple-angle cameras, and managing different facilities such as warehouses, in addition to helping people of determination.
