Abu Dhabi to launch Artificial Intelligence drivers on getting driving license, a police official said on the 26th World Congress in ADNEC (Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center).

The system also known as ‘Smart Driving Test” uses advance technologies to assess the performance of the driver taking the test.

The officer insisted that 18 smart cars will be distributed to serve Abu Dhabi, 10 in Al Ain, and 8 in Al Dhafra. “This system will ensure fair result as margin of error will be zero. There will be total of nine cameras, six of which will be outside. One out of the three cameras inside the car will capture face of the driver. The camera will check for eye movements to know if the driver is looking at the mirror while shifting lanes, etc. There are sensors on the body of the car, which give further data.”

The artificially powered car is connected to a control room through GPS (Global Positioning System). Moreover, this system will identify mistakes as an applicant commits a specific mistake.

“For each mistake, the system will deduct marks. Like, if there is a minor mistake it will be five marks or so. A major one like jumping of red light or driving in the wrong lane will lead to an immediate end of the test. There is a video review available if the person wants to cross-check the accuracy of the system. All the mistakes committed by a driver will be explained. It will all be done by the system. There will be a police officer inside the vehicle but will only engage in case of an emergency.”

The Smart driving test is undergoing a trial basis since June 2019.
