Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) has signed a contract with Arabian Automobile Association (AAA) to operate a smart car recovery system to be launched this March in Dubai. The system will offer roadside assistance in case of vehicle breakdown through a smart app.
An announcement to this effect was made during the signing of the agreement at RTA Head Office by Dr Yousef Mohammed Al Ali, CEO of DTC and Mohammed bin Sulayem, Chairman of AAA.
“The smart car recovery system operates via the smart app by sending the coordinates of the location of the faulty vehicle to the nearest available recovery vehicle,” said Al Ali.
Mohammed bin Sulayem, Chairman of AAA, said: “DTC’s initiative, which aims to turn the car recovery business into a digital platform, would be a positive step that contributes to easing traffic movement in Dubai.
“The project will help provide car recovery services and roadside assistance online through a smart app. Thus, it helps facilitate the traffic movement and alleviate traffic bottlenecks in main roads and highways due to accidents and vehicle breakdown. Through this technology, the motorist would not be obliged to wait for long for towing his or her vehicle, and would be able to track the movement of the recovery vehicle on its way for providing assistance,” added Bin Sulayem.
