dubai used car buyers to get instant access to accident history

Prospective second-hand car buyers in Dubai will soon be able to check a vehicle’s accident history in real-time, according to an announcement by the emirate’s police force. Law enforcement officials recently explained that a new system will use artificial intelligence (AI) to help buyers gain access to valuable data about crashes a car has been involved in, as well as its current mechanical condition.

Dubai Police have also announced the integration of AI into 29 administrative operations across multiple departments, with minor accidents also set to be analyzed and logged by AI-powered algorithms.

Currently, Dubai drivers submit accident details for manual review by a police officer before a report is created. The new technology will instead use AI to analyze accident details and issue reports to both parties involved in minor traffic incidents.

It’s believed that the new tech could reduce accident report processing times from seven hours to four, and the service will soon be available on the Dubai Police app and through its web portal.

Major-General Khalid Nasser Alrazooqi, director of Dubai Police’s AI department, said the force has updated its app to offer 70 services in seven languages. Local police officers even have a virtual team member called Amna, who holds the rank of first lieutenant and is able to answer queries in Arabic and English. In 2023, Amna had already completed 20,000 conversations with the public.

As Dubai continues to deploy smart technology to improve its infrastructure, law enforcement is becoming increasingly automated. Since the beginning of this year, an AI-powered Smart Police Station (SPS) has operated without human officers, receiving 127,515 visitors and processing 36,376 transactions.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities.
