7 Days in Dubai - - GITEX TECH WEEK 2016 - ali.shouk@7days.ae

Cars in the UAE are to have new tech­nol­ogy that con­tacts the emer­gency ser­vices in Dubai if a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent hap­pened. Dubai Po­lice said that the new ini­tia­tive will be in­stalled in Nis­san cars and it will alert the force when the car is in­volved in a se­ri­ous crash. Bri­gadier Khalid Nasir Al Ra­zooqi, Head of Smart Ser­vices Depart­ment in Dubai Po­lice, said that the new tech­nol­ogy will be in new Nis­san Pa­trol and Max­ima ve­hi­cles, and will send an SOS mes­sage to the com­mand room in the event of a crash. Bri­gadier Al Ra­zooqi said: “The new tech­nol­ogy will be in­stalled in the new Nis­san cars and can send an au­to­matic mes­sage to Dubai Po­lice com­mand cen­tre when­ever the car is in­volved in a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent. The new sys­tem will send a re­port about the ve­hi­cle’s lo­ca­tion and speed five sec­onds be­fore the ac­ci­dent to help po­lice pa­trols and am­bu­lance to reach the place as soon as pos­si­ble and save lives.” Dubai Po­lice is launch­ing the new tech­nol­ogy dur­ing GI­TEX 2016 and it will work in the UAE only. “The sys­tem can es­ti­mate if the ac­ci­dent is se­ri­ous or mi­nor to al­low Dubai Po­lice to call the driver and check his con­di­tion,” Al Ra­zooqi said.
