. Doha (Qatar), 24/01/2015.- Camels being controled by robot jockeys race at the Sheikh Faisal Camel Race Track, Qatar 24 January 2015. The traditional Bedouin sport sees camels racing around a track of eight kilometers. Also known as the 'Sport of Sheikhs', Qatar has begun using robot jockeys instead of human jockeys. Robots jockeys are designed with titanium to look like humans equipped with electronic whips and are controlled from the sides of the track by an armchair jockey manning a joystick and computer screen.
