Truck sensors to be soon rolled out in Dubai

Daijiworld Media Network - Dubai (SHP)

Dubai, Oct 8:  The city will soon have truck sensors to avert hazardous incidents. The sensors on the truck will capture if the vehicle is overloaded or raising a safety issue.

To test the technology, Al Hatta Road already has one sensor installed by the RTA.

Abdulla Albastaki, director of monitoring and enforcing department at the licensing agency of the RTA, said, "We used to monitor heavy vehicles on Dubai roads manually, and that takes time."

"We have changed that and we have installed sensors under the roads. When the vehicle crosses that sensor, it will be able to tell us if it is overweight, which is a safety issue. Once it is detected, the sensor alerts the nearest safety vehicle, which then stops the truck," he added.
