Remote monitoring systems installed in Dubai's trucks

Remote monitoring systems are now being installed in trucks across Dubai to detect faults in the heavy vehicles.

That's according to the Roads and Transport Authority, which launched Phase II of the project in the beginning of September.

The devices asses the behaviour of truck drivers on the roads, with the overall goal of reducing traffic violations.

They will be installed in trucks that have been in service for 15 years or more, with the current phase targeting 20,000 vehicles.
