The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has launched a robot for reciting the Quran, sermons, and the call to prayer (Azaan) at the Grand Mosque in Makkah.
The recitations, sermons, and Azaan robots will feature at the Grand Mosque in Makkah through the work of the imam and muezzin affairs authority, Arab News reported.
The smart robots will display barcodes enabling users to download services on smartphones. Alternatively, users can press commands on the robots to access information on prayers, imams, muezzins, and weekly schedules, including the names of clerics delivering Friday sermons.
The launch of the robots by the presidency is part of a series of smart technology projects dedicated to the Two Holy Mosques to provide improved services to visitors.
Chief of the Presidency of the Two Holy Mosques Sheikh Abdulrahman Al-Sudais said that the launch is part of a “big strategic plan” to implement the smart Haramain project, according to Vision 2030 and the strategic 2024 plan of the presidency to provide improved services to visitors.
Al-Sudais has launched other smart robots that work without human intervention, including a disinfectant and sterilization robot, Fatwa robot, smart disinfectant robot and a Holy Kaaba surface cleaning robot.
