The robots, wired with multi-touch screens and powered with 5G capabilities, were created by the Chinese tech company Terminus and they will deliver food, giving help with directions and take photographs. "Expo 2020 will be an unprecedented platform to showcase the capabilities of innovative technology". Mohammed AlHashmi, Chief Technology Officer, Expo 2020 Dubai said. Not only. To ensure health safety, the Expo 2020 Dubai team has developed stringent health and safety guidelines with leading government authorities. Robots will also monitor social distancing and systems of artificial intelligence to control queues in the site.

Among the latest generation robots there is Opti the robot-guardian, one of the 6 mascot of Expo 2020 Dubai. Opti plays an important role during the event: it is the 'guardian' of the Opportunity pavilion, one of the three thematic pavilions in addition to Mobility and Sustainability.

"Connecting Minds, Creating the Future" 

is the theme of the Expo, a meeting point between innovators and technology gurus as explained by the short film made with the six mascots that will give life to the spirit of the event. Two intrepid Emirati brothers Latifa (science prodigy) and Rashid, three colored robots, Alif, Opti and Terra representing the three thematic themes and a real ghaf tree named Salama, maintained and protected in the Dubai South exhibition site, will welcome thousands of visitors from all over the world during the exhibition semester.


With the fate of the earth in the balance, it is up to Rashid and Latifa to save the day. Under the watchful eye of Salama, the wise and mighty ghaf tree, they must unravel the ancient secrets to ensure a better future before it's too late. But they are not alone. With the help of guardian robots, Opti, Alif and Terra will tackle any challenge as they embark on a journey through time and space at Expo 2020 Dubai.

The national ghaf tree of the United Arab Emirates Salama will play a central role in introducing children to Expo 2020 Dubai. The past, the present and the future at Expo 2020 Dubai.
