Dubai Taxi Corporation has chosen FMS Tech., along with its business partner, Technologica, for a telematics project. The project will see telematics devices installed in 113 limousines initially, and will be expanded at a later stage.

The project will include over 100 telematics parameters obtained by the FMS Tech device from limousine vehicles and sent across to the RTA RMS (regulatory monitoring system) platform. This data will then be analysed by DTC’s fleet managers to evaluate the performance of the drivers and vehicles. The information will then be relayed to the drivers to improve their driving habits.

The new system aims to enhance road safety. Moreover, it will also help in understanding driver routes better and reducing car idle time, which will in turn reduce costs and improve the over-all customer experience.

“We are very proud and honoured to be selected to take this project on-board by Dubai Taxi Corporation. We are keen on working on this project further and aid Dubai's, RTA’s and DTC's Smart City vision. We look forward to seeing the results that the new devices will achieve for RTA and assist in paving the way to safer and more connected roads,” said Bassam Alkassar, CEO of FMS Tech.

The newest technology from FMS Tech, Track 2000 IoT, records all data pertaining to driver behaviour, vehicle location, vehicle status, and engine status and performance, and vehicle and engine maintenance and sends these data at predefined very short intervals across the GSM network to the RTA RMS platform.

“Our engineers have worked very hard to ensure that all RTA’s requirements are met in a timely manner, and for the device to be customisable for future modification and enhancements. Our partner, Technologica in Dubai- UAE, has already begun installing the devices and supporting DTC on this project”, added AlKassar.
