RTA announces the use of modern technology to assess the roads of the Emirates
The individual marvels at the creativity of the United Arab Emirates and the rapid development that it is going on, so that it has surpassed the developed countries in various fields, and below, the Roads and Transport Authority announced the use of modern technology to evaluate the Emirates’ roads, as it was recently revealed a realistic technique used by the Roads and Transport Authority in Dubai from In order to maintain the safety of road users.

The Roads and Transport Authority has made an announcement on the utilisation of cutting-edge technology in order to evaluate the roads of the Emirates.
Utilisation of laser technology for the assessment of road safety in Dubai
An important official from an institution within the Roads and Transport Authority explained that the laser technology collects data on the condition of the road surface and plays a significant role in enhancing operational efficiencies. The laser is a high-tech beam that activates its work on the roads of Dubai in a vehicle that belongs to the Roads and Transport Authority, According to the Chief Executive Officer of the Traffic and Roads Agency at the Roads and Transport Authority, Maitha bin Uday, this new technology reduces the amount of time spent on field inspections by up to 400 percent and raises the level of accuracy of the automated examination data to 97 percent when compared to the previous survey and automatic examination. Furthermore, this technology, which was just recently announced by the authority, is already in use. The Roads and Transport Authority had recently bestowed an international prize on the Pavement Maintenance Management System (PMMS). The Authority was presented with the Brandon Hall Excellence Award 2022 in the "The Future of Business - Best Advances in Assessment and Survey Technology" category.
How does the technology for inspecting roads with lasers work?
The PMMS project being undertaken by the RTA is an all-encompassing automated road condition assessment system. "It is designed to track and inspect the paving layers of all different types of roads, record the current state of the paving, and identify damages that occur in the paving layers during the operational cycle of the paving works," added Bin Uday. "It also records the current state of the paving." to guarantee that they will continue to be in pristine shape and that they will continue to fulfil the prerequisites for the safety and comfort of those who use the roads.The RTA has been able to automate these routine inspections thanks to the Pavement Management and Maintenance System (PMMS). The purpose of the inspection is to identify surface deterioration in asphalt pavement, such as cracks, depressions, pits, and decay.This is exemplified in the utilising cutting-edge laser technology to provide an indication of the level of driving comfort, the quality of the pavement, or the degree to which the road is rough.
