Motorola and UAE Ministry of Interior sign MOU to expand pilot for mobile video surveillance

Abu Dhabi Police extend Motorola video project
The pilot project is intended to give Abu Dhabi Police better situational awareness through real time video and communications.

The UAE Ministry of Interior is to expand its collaboration with Motorola, to roll out more mobile video and communications technologies for the Abu Dhabi Police.

The Ministry has signed an MOU with Motorola's Enterprise Mobility Solutions business unit, to collaborate on the development and deployment of applications for fixed and mobile broadband and end-to-end video surveillance.

The MOU will build on an initial pilot project, which was launched in February, to provide mobile closed circuit TV for Abu Dhabi police.

The pilot, which is planned to run until August, has installed mobile broadband video in police vehicles, which allows personnel in the field and five command and control centres across the UAE capital to share high definition, real time streaming video, to enable greater awareness and response to incidents.

The project, which uses Motorola's MOTOLocator solution, is also able to connect other applications used by the police force, including fixed camera installations, automated speed tracking of vehicles, facial recognition and automatic license plate recognition applications, to connect via IP. The pilot will also aim to integrate other IP-based solutions, such as national ID data, electronic passports and fingerprint records.

"Motorola continues to play a leading role in the delivery of mission critical solutions for public safety bodies and its commitment to meeting their evolving needs. We're excited to sign this Memorandum of Understanding which builds on the existing partnership with Abu Dhabi Police to deploy further cutting edge technology putting real-time information into the hands of the police force," said Manuel Torres, corporate vice president and general manager, Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions, EMEA.
