The UAE's Ministry of Labour announced a concept for a labour inspection vehicle to be used for on-site visits. 

The vehicle has been launched during Innovation Week, under the directives of HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the UAE, and HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai. 

Smart drones have been installed in the car, which can be deployed by inspectors to monitor and record on-site labour activities. 

Khaled Alsaeedi, head of infrastructure at the Ministry's information technology department, and the vehicle's supervisor and designer, said: "The vehicle depends on many operational mechanisms of integrated intelligent systems interconnected with each other.

"In addition to the exterior appearance which reflects the Ministry of Labour's corporate identity, the car has been designed to highlight a futuristic impression of a smart vehicle."

The concept inspection vehicle is now subject to a testing and revision phase to ensure the effectiveness of its performance before being officially launched, according to state agency WAM.
