UAE sets benchmark in use of drone technology against Covid-19
The UAE’s relentless drive to become one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world has been a major contributor in helping it combat the spread of Covid-19, experts say.
The country’s willingness to embrace new technologies, especially drones, has been a major factor in controlling the spread of the virus and keeping residents safe, technology manufacturers noted.
“The UAE is a technology pioneer,” Rashid Al Ghurair, techpreneur and founder of CAFU, told Khaleej Times. “From smart government services, 3D printing, or drone technology, we find ourselves at the epicenter of smart city living. As the Covid-19 crisis unfolds, technology continues to become an even more essential part of our daily lives, helping us to reduce daily interactions.”
Drone technology in particular, he said, holds “huge potential” for managing crisis. “It is in times like these, we benefit the most from the vision of the UAE government. Today drones are used to not only monitor the movement of its residents for their own safety but are used to disinfect public spaces.”
