Abu Dhabi Police to use drones to locate missing people
The technology could be used for helping people in emergencies and to find residents if they get lost in remote areas
The Abu Dhabi Police have tested a new technology that will see them using drones to locate missing persons.
The technology, which was developed by the UAE University, could be used for helping people in emergencies and to find residents if they get lost in remote areas.
A search and rescue team at the police's central operations tested the technology as a part of its measures to improving emergency services. It was tested based on international quick response standards to emergencies.
According to a Press statement issued by the police on Monday, the technology is in line with the UAE government's vision to upgrade police services.
Colonel Mohammed Ibrahim Al Ameri, head of the emergency and public safety department, stressed the importance of using drones in rescue operations. This technology, he said, reduces human errors in locating missing persons.
He praised the police's relationship with universities and research centres.
Dr Fekry Kherbash, dean, Information Technology College at the UAE University, said the new technology aims to boost the police's response time to emergencies.
