Project to link city administration, public safety, education and health care sectors Dubai: His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has announced a project to transform Dubai into a “Smart City”, linking the emirate’s government services and the public through the use of smart devices accessed freely using high-speed wireless internet connections.
Shaikh Mohammad said the new integrated high-tech approach aims to use the latest advances in technology to create a model for providing government services that are easily accessible, quick and efficient using smart devices.
Smart City’s main aim is to provide better connections and increase cooperation between the emirate and its residents. It promotes the use of government facilities using the largest possible number of smart applications.
“As a smart city, government departments will be inter-connected to provide faster services and information to all citizens and guests. We strive to create a new smart concept in running cities,” Shaikh Mohammad said.
“Through experience, we have learned that there is no one-model-fits-all for development. We strive to catalyse innovation and push the limits of using technology to benefit people,” Shaikh Mohammad said.
Through the project, high-speed wireless internet connections will be provided in public locations. Smart sensors will be installed throughout the city to provide live information and services with the aim of providing all residents and visitors with a better quality of life.
