CAFU boosts business commitment with cutting-edge autonomous technology for planting one million Ghaf seeds

by Mohammad Ghazal

Dubai-based technology and car services leader, CAFU, announces the launch of its first-of-its-kind autonomous and unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) technology to accelerate the company’s commitment towards planting one million Ghaf tree seeds in the UAE as part of its Ghaf Tree Project.

This groundbreaking technology addresses the global challenge of climate change and supports the UAE’s goal to become net-zero by 2050. The advanced UGV technology is equipped with custom seedball planting capabilities and tracks specifically designed to operate in desert conditions.

In 2021, CAFU introduced the ‘Ghaf Tree Project,’ a bold initiative aiming to re-green barren ecosystems across the Emirates by planting one million Ghaf seeds. The company collaborated with United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) for extensive research and development focused on seed optimization and viability. This partnership led to the innovative UGV technology, which is expected to quadruple the number of seeds planted, strengthening CAFU’s commitment to a greener future and supporting the UAE’s ecosystem.

The new technology not only accelerates the planting process but also ensures the survival of the Ghaf trees. Ghaf trees can thrive in some of the harshest environmental conditions with minimal water, symbolizing hope and inspiring innovative farming methods across the Emirates.

Nabra Al Busaidi, Community and Sustainability Manager at CAFU, said, “We believe that technology is a force for good, not just for services, but for the community and the world in which we live. We’re proud to introduce and use our cutting-edge technology to support the UAE’s commitment to building a cleaner and greener future. Over the past year, we have significantly re-engineered our processes. We are excited to launch the first UAE-produced unmanned ground technology and are continuing on our promise to plant one million Ghaf tree seeds to make a positive impact on our environment.”

CAFU’s dedication to environmental sustainability and social impact continues to drive the company’s development of groundbreaking technologies. With the launch of the autonomous UGV technology, CAFU further establishes its position as a leader in technology for good.
