Heads Up! Drones Are Now Monitoring Traffic in Dubai

Bottlenecks, accidents, congestion… Dubai Police are kept very busy monitoring traffic across the emirate. But they’re also known for embracing new technologies, which includes a fleet of 4G drone Dubai Police aircraft.

Drone Dubai fleet take off

Dubai Police have begun deploying drone aircraft to monitor road traffic with live broadcasts. The new system is in place to help ease congestion across the emirate during peak hours.

Equipped with 4G technology, the drones send back data and traffic reports in real-time to the operations room. This will help give drivers more accurate, up to the minute traffic reports. The drones will be able to detect congested roads that typically occur during rush-hour, allowing Dubai Police to respond to situations more quickly.
