Today, Saturday, more than 2.5 million active driving licenses were revealed in Dubai, and the Roads and Transport Authority said that the number of vehicles registered in Dubai reached 1.83 million cars.

This came with the adoption of Matar Mohammed Al Tayer, Director General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority, smart initiatives to improve drivers and vehicles licenses and road maintenance.

During the meeting, he watched a presentation on the driving test vehicle that was published as part of the "Intelligent Track System" - a future project based on the use of information technology in vehicles.

These vehicles are equipped with smart sensors and GIS, enabling them to monitor trainees on their driver's license during tests. The system was installed in 250 vehicles, which performed 43,828 tests in 16 driving institutes during the first quarter of this year. The project reduced records retrieval time by up to 75 percent, reduced accident reporting time by 75 percent as well, and saved 60,000 sheets of paper.

The project uses advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, the Internet of things, advanced advanced driver assistance systems, geographic information systems, face recognition technology, and 3D panoramic photography.

Al Tayer also heard a summary of the digital transformation of driver licenses. The project is re-engineering drivers' licensing services and converting them into digital flights.

The project will reduce the average number of visits to drivers licensing centers from 14 to zero; Cutting the carbon footprint from 18,000 tons to zero; The number of service delivery channels increased from three to six, and it also supported the government's paperless strategy by providing four million sheets of paper.

The drones were used to examine the structural components of the pedestrian bridges that cross the Dubai Water Canal and high installations.

The RTA Chairman also reviewed an intelligent monitoring system installed inside the bridge loader. The system consists of sensors that are inserted into the bridge shafts to monitor and measure loads as well as the surrounding environmental conditions.
