Dubai RTA and Tata Consultancy Services tie up to make roads safer
Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and TCS have signed a MoU to use technology in analyzing motorists’ attitudes in Dubai through smart apps.
The MoU was signed at RTA's headquarters by Abdullah Yousef Al Ali, CEO of Licensing Agency; and Ajay Singh, Regional Director of TCS.
"The MoU provides for a 3-month trial period where the smart app (Data Logger) developed by TCS will be uploaded onto Android phones fitted with a GPS navigator and a 9-Axis IMU of select categories of volunteered RTA's drivers and university students," said Al Ali.
The system will monitor the conduct of motorists in terms of over-speeding, veering and sudden braking. The app will capture and transfer data related to drivers' conduct to servers where it will be analysed using artificial intelligence applications to verify drivers' violations. The report generated will draw analysis between how offences are related to age, occupation, timing and location. The findings will support the research and development efforts at both RTA and TCS.
