Vehicle license plates have not changed much in idea from the car itself was invented more than a century ago. But digital license plates have been talked about more in current years. Now, drivers in Dubai are set to experiment them out. Dubai explores the use of latest technology quite a bit. In the past, it has tested robot police officers, autonomous patrol a flying taxi and cars service. An earlier year, city officials declared plans to develop a gallery that will scan Dubai International Airport. A visitors with dozens of facial iris scanning cameras and be sustaining.
Next month, Dubai will begin experiment digital license plates, the BBC reports. And also they will be capable to contact emergency services in the event of a crash. And contact with other cars about traffic situations and show an alert if it or the car it’s on are plucked. An experiment will begin next month to attempt out the method. And a test for any technological problems arising because of the city’s hot. A dry climate and figure out how better to roll out the devices in the future.
Along with its contact features, the digital smart plate will also allow for users’ fines. And also plate registration prices and parking fees to be deducted automatically from their accounts. Whatever, because the plates will be outfitted with a GPS and transmitters, they could trigger anxiety over data security and privacy. The head of Dubai’s cars Licensing Section at Dubai’s streets and transportation Authority said the cost for these plates hasn’t been ascertained yet. But the project prices will be known once the testing wraps up in November.
But because GPS is fitted to the smart license plates, there is anxiety about secrecy. The license numbers can be changed by the transportation authority remotely. Which means they could probably be hacked. The BBC also said Dubai’s wilderness climate with sand and heat may also gesture challenges to the technology.
California passed a bill in 2013 to start allowing the experiment of digital smart license plates. And also they started rolling out previous this year. Plate tracking and readers are also nothing latest for law enforcement agencies. And also these digital plates could take that to a new level.
