Dubai Roads and Transport Authority inks MoU to improve drones network service

Dubai Roads and Transport Authority inks MoU to improve drones network service

According to the Government of Dubai, the Roads and
Transport Authority (RTA) has
signed
a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Professional Communication
Corporation
(NEDAA) for improving drones network service in Dubai. 

The MoU
was signed by CEO of RTA’s Technology Support Services Sector Mr Abdullah Al
Madani and CEO of NEDAA Mansoor Juma Bu Osaiba at the RTA Head Office.

The MoU signed with NEDAA provides for RTA to coordinate
between the Civil Aviation Authority
(CAA) and NEDAA to fulfil the needs of obtaining the required clearance from
the CAA. RTA will also coordinate with NEDAA in developing as many uses as
possible for pilotless planes along with the supporting network, besides
identifying areas requiring service coverage. According to the MoU, NEDAA will
map out time charts for carrying out tailor-made test projects and generate
analyses of traffic and 3D charts of relevance for RTA.

“The signing of the MoU underscores RTA’s keenness to
cooperate with the parties concerned in keeping abreast of the UAE Artificial
Intelligence Strategy and addressing the needs of the Smart City initiative of
our government. The MoU also contributes to the achievement of our First
Strategic Goal (Smart Dubai), and Seventh Strategic Goal (RTA Excellence),” said
Mr Abdullah Al Madani.

According to Mr Mansoor Bu Osaiba, the signing of this MoU
is part of NEDAA’s ongoing cooperation with government entities with the aim of
providing them with the latest communication technologies that meet their
diverse needs, especially with the fast-changing communication technologies.

“Our 4G network can help drones to monitor roads and traffic
movement; which will ease the business of the RTA and other parties concerned
with the streamlining of traffic flow on Dubai roads. Given the relentless
efforts for migrating towards a smart & integrated city, we are keen on
introducing sophisticated technologies that keep pace with this development
through a fast, safe and reliable communication network,” he added.

The partnership is part of the UAE
Artificial Intelligence Strategy
issued last October. The Strategy aims to
boost government performance at all levels and various sectors, using an
integrated smart digital system that can overcome challenges and provide quick
efficient solutions. For transport sector, the goal is to use the technology to
reduce accidents and cut operational costs. It also aims to reduce accidents
and traffic jams and draw more effective traffic policies.
