From cameras on our phones to the super speedy delivery of something we’ve just ordered from the shop, smart technology just keeps getting better and more innovative.
And now the UAE’s Ministry of Health and Prevention is using smart technology to tackle traffic jams to improve the function of its emergency service fleet.
New smart ambulances will be fitted with traffic light alarms, which will automatically change the sequence of traffic lights as they approach.
Not only will this allow ambulances to provide a rapid response, it will also allow them to speed up their journey to the hospital.
The announcement was made during the Arab Health 2020 exhibition, which took place at Dubai World Trade Centre.
