Dubai Taxi Now Tracking Passengers Not Wearing a Mask By a New Tracking Technology

Dubai Taxi Now Tracking Passengers Not Wearing a Mask By a New Tracking Technology - Coming Soon in UAE
25 June 2020

RTA has introduced Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies in Dubai taxi on a trial basis.

Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced about implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology in taxis across Dubai to detect passengers not wearing face masks.

According to RTA, the technologies were put in taxis to monitor violators, who not follow preventive measures. The AI technology scans human faces and determines if a mask is being worn or not. Moreover, this AI can calculate the distance between a passenger and the driver.

Ahmed Mahboub, Executive Director of Smart Services, Corporate Technology Support Services Sector, RTA said, “The use of AI technologies proved very effective and achieved a success rate of 100%. The introduction of this technology was on a trial base, and according to the deliverables, the technology will be generalized to all fleet vehicles”.

Thanks to AI technology, which can process videos spanning more than 200 thousand hours per day, human analysis becomes unnecessary. However, it is still not clear, whether Dubai Police will receive the data about such passengers, violating government directive.
