Dubai Police start using Google Glass to nab errant drivers: Watch Video


May 27, 2014: After the New York cops announced in February about field testing Google Glass for various purposes now it’s Dubai Police which is making news. Police in Dubai have started using Google Glass to nab drivers who violate traffic rules. The new app is currently being tested by Dubai Police Smart Services Department. Presently the Dubai Police is using two applications to capture traffic violators. This Google’s wearable display will help the police officers to take photos of traffic violators using Google Glass.

Once a police officer takes a snap of the erring driver, the photo can be instantly uploaded in the system of the police department using an app. Another app which is being tested by Dubai Police would help in identifying wanted cars. The Google Glass will help in tracking cars which are in the offenders list and alert the police. If this experiment becomes successful it would definitely change the way people drive and we can see more tech savvy police officers across the world manning the traffic. Surveillance vendors like CopTrax are also collaborating with police in different places so as to record traffic violations using an app in the Google Glass.
