Titan – The Robot greeter in Abu Dhabi
The greeter at Abu Dhabi’s International Defence Exhibition is making a buzz on social media, as nobody expected to meet a bilingual, eight feet tall robot.
Idex 2019, which was launched on Sunday at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), runs until February 21. More than 1,310 defence firms are participating in the five-day event, an increase of six per cent compared to the previous edition of Idex in 2017.
On the first day, the UAE Armed Forces signed deals worth Dh4.97 billion with various international and local companies to purchase arms and other equipment to boost the country’s defence capabilities.
While nations were signing contracts and millions of dollar were spent behind closed doors, the greeter at Idex brought a lighter side to the exhibition.
