RPlate technology can automate vehicle registration renewals and add new levels of personalisation to the licence plate that includes promoting charitable causes or a favourite sports team, Mr Al Gurg said.
Motorist will be able to monitor the vehicle remotely through the app connected with the users’ smartphone and the regulators’ systems and alert them if the vehicle is bumped in a parking lot or if a car is stolen.
Driver behaviour and location can also be monitored through the sensors.
In collaboration with Reviver Auto, a California-headquartered technology firm, Seed Group, a company of the Private Office of Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed Al Maktoum will invest AED250 million in the first phase of the project according to Mr Gurg.
