Dubai's Road and Transport Authority (RTA) has launched a new generation of vehicle inspection using innovative technologies at the top information and communications technology ( ICT) trade fair Gitex Technology Week in Dubai.
The state-of-the-art process renders the inspection faster, easier and more accurate for RTA and customers alike said a statement from RTA.
"We are striving to boost the government's drive to rank Dubai the smartest and happiest city worldwide using cutting-edge technology, especially Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems," remarked Abdulla Yousef Al Ali, the chief executive of RTA’s Licensing Agency.
"Despite the contemporary technology & information revolution era, vehicle inspection technology still hinges entirely on traditional methods and human factor. This situation has prompted RTA to develop a new generation of advanced solutions tailored to deliver high-quality and accurate vehicle inspection in Dubai. The step aims at attaining the highest level of people satisfaction and happiness," he noted.
The Licensing Agency is currently working on solutions involving a new generation of vehicles inspection that uses sophisticated technology and AI.
The first is the Smart Inspection Robot; an autonomous robot that scans the vehicle plate number, moves to the undercarriage to take images and then sends instant reports to the control room at the Technical Inspection Centre. It detects faults, makes observations, and links with RTA’s central technical inspection system.
The second is the smart vehicle inspection glasses that use the latest augmented reality technology.
The initiative aims to maximize benefits from these devices by linking with the smart vehicle inspection robot to facilitate vehicles technical inspection.
