While I was at Gitex last week this video got revealed by Abu Dhabi Police GHQ. It’s a bit too long but you can forward the first 2 minutes to skip right to the action. What’s more interesting is the number plate and face recognition system they have installed on their vehicles. The cinema-like video already has 2 million views, so I guess to them producing the video was totally worth it.
I was visiting an Expo in Dubai yesterday when out of nowhere I find Uber has a booth. I asked them when will they launch in Kuwait thinking everything is almost complete but that was far from reality.
They told me they would need around 18 months and they haven’t yet evaluated whether it would be feasible for them to open in Kuwait considering it’s a small population and they would need government approval before doing anything. I guess for now we’ll have to work with EasyTaxi until Uber shows up.
