RTA reveals Dubai’s new robot parking inspectors

The new smart system will monitor and enforce payments

Dubai is getting more futuristic by the day – and now the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is rolling out robot parking inspectors.

Artificial intelligence scanners will be mounted on vehicles so human staff don’t have to face the summer heat while dishing out tickets to parking violators.

The scanner can automatically detect if a parked car has an expired parking ticket.

The smart system was set up in order to help monitor and enforce payment across the city.

CEO of Traffic and Roads at RTA Maitha bin Adai said: “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.”

With e-payment parking tickets on the rise compared to paper tickets, this new system is crucial on keeping tabs on who has paid.

RTA released a video on Twitter that shows how the system will work.

A whole bunch of new technology is taking over the UAE, such as plans for Abu Dhabi’s new Hyperloop system. The future is fast approaching.
