Along with the number of smart initiatives showcased at GITEX Technology Week 2018, the Dubai Municipality has also launched a smart inspection system called the Mohameti (MyTask) app, which aims to track down law offenders in the city.
With this development, violations such as bachelors overcrowding Dubai buildings, illegal extensions made in villas, and other offences can now be easily detected by authorities.
New Initiative to Track Violators Introduced at GITEX Week
The smart inspection system, which will digitally manage inspection workflow procedures will help building, environment, and public health and safety department inspectors become more efficient at tracking down law offenders in the city.
The Mohameti mobile app, which was developed by the GIS Centre of the Municipality of Dubai will allow inspectors to carry out their duties more efficiently with the system’s integrated external laser device known as Spike. This feature allows its users to receive notifications regarding complaints from the public and other requests for specialized tasks.
Information gathered by the system includes details of the places to check as collected by the app, instead of compiled reports on paper filed to the office. Through the app’s unique reporting and detection capabilities, inspectors will no longer have to carry a GPS device, camera, and a booklet to locate the place; nor do they have to report violations with a camera anymore.
Other notable system features include a laser measurement scanner attached to the smartphone, which allows inspectors to capture the 3D measurement of a reported site and gather other relevant information, such as the number of people currently in the room.
Furthermore, the system conveniently stores violation reports, fines, and notices, as well as information regarding corrective measures taken for each case handled. Also, when a violation has been reported to the system, the notice can be easily issued to violators through SMS or e-mail notification.
