Abu Dhabi is using artificial intelligence to extinguish fires.

The capital’s civil defence authority uses a remotely controlled system to put out blazes in industrial areas, tunnels and closed parking spaces.

The innovative solution can operate from a distance of up to 500 meters and can pump between 1,500 to 4,500 liters of water per minute.

The new technology has also helped authorities during the national sterilization programme amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
