Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) introduced the final touch of 75 projects as a part of the Smart City and Artificial Intelligence Programme. Projects finished relating to the clever agency, infrastructure, smart automobiles, data control, synthetic intelligence, and clever and sustainable delivery.
RTA has carried out a bunch of smart projects and initiatives such as Raqeeb machine, which video display units the situation of 300 bus drivers. The machine contributed to decreasing fatigue-related injuries by means of sixty-five %.

Al Merqab monitors about six million trips,” explained Al Tayer.
RTA has finished Phase III of the Automated System for Monitoring Dedicated Bus Lanes, which has decreased the range of cars violating the bus lane by using 83% and advanced bus on-time arrival by way of 20%.
Projects encompass the smart pedestrian signaling device at 15 locations. Through clever sensors, the machine will increase or abolishes the time allocated to pedestrians, based totally on the human’s movement detected by means of the machine. Projects include the clever parking reserving device enabling the patron to book parking earlier than arrival to the meant destination.
