Dubai's RTA launches AI-based Digital Coach to train drivers
Robot that runs on AI will handle interactive training sessions, and will refine the skills of drivers and improve training deliverables
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the launch of an artificial intelligence-based digital coach project that aims to train public transport drivers in a first-of-its-kind initiative in line with the UAE Strategy for Artificial Intelligence.
As part of the project, a robot has been configured to train novice and professional drivers on traffic awareness. It is equipped with training material and can respond to all relevant queries that trainee drivers might raise during theoretical lectures.
According to the RTA, the AI-based robot is capable of handling interactive training sessions that keep drivers focused. The digital coach will be used as an advanced training tool to deliver driver training modules. It will also help refine the skills of drivers and improve training deliverables.
The RTA also plans to upgrade the use of this robot to make it capable of handling future improvements in training materials.
