The UAE’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced the launching of artificial intelligence-equipped smart devices to monitor Dubai’s paid parking zones.
According to Gulf News, the devices will be mounted on RTA vehicles allowing officers to just drive around the paid parking lots, and the scanners will automatically detect parked cars with expired parking tickets.
“The system will step up the efficiency of monitoring and enforcement, and reduce the potential errors in filing offences. The introduction of such smart systems in the RTA underlines its commitment to keep pace with Dubai Government’s transition to a smart government, which is part of the UAE Strategy for Artificial Intelligence,” Maitha Bin Adai, the CEO of the Traffic and Roads Agency at the RTA told the newspaper.
She added that the system will help reduce human error and cut down disputes over parking fines.
