30 July, 2016
Dubai taxis will soon be fitted with the Makani mapping app, allowing passengers to provide drivers with more precise directions, Dubai Municipality has confirmed. Dubai Taxi Corporation is currently testing the app, which allows users to find locations in Dubai within 1 sq m. Abdul Hakim Malek, the body’s director of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), said it would be implemented by the end of August. Dubai Police has already implemented the smart system in its operations, enabling residents to report an emergency and share their Makani 10-digit coordinates, said the report.
