The UAE’s unremitting drive to become one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world has been a vital contributor in its combat against the spread of COVID-19, according to industry experts.

Its willingness to embrace and experiment with new technologies has dramatically helped in protecting its residents from the adverse effects of this virus.

A techpreneur and the founder of CAFU Rashid Al Ghurair said that:

“Because the UAE is a technology pioneer, its residents find itself to be benefiting from it as the COVID-19 crisis unfolds, that compels that people remain at a distance from each other and reduce daily interactions as much as possible. The ample usage of technology makes it infinitely more comfortable to do just that.”

In troubling times like these, Drone technology, in particular, is coming really handy. As it holds a vast potential for managing any crisis. Thanks to the vision of the UAE government, its residents are now able to reap the benefits. As at this moment in time, drones are applied not solely to monitor the progress of its residents for their safety but are also used to disinfect public spaces.

Monica Suk, senior communication manager at DJI, said that the company has been operating with several organizations to not only execute methods proven to be effective at addressing health and safety but further to examine new ways that may have potential.

She also said:

“In the UAE, we have already observed drones being used by local government entities for a variety of things, including sterilization of the streets of Dubai, or broadcasting and monitoring measures in Abu Dhabi. These methods are demonstrating to be essential in ensuring public safety.”

She further elaborated:

“We praise the joint efforts of the UAE’s government entities and the residents, who have faithfully united in their endeavors to tackle COVID-19. By harnessing the power of advanced technologies such as automated drones will proceed to be critical in ensuring that communication links, visibility, and safety of all are maintained.”

Asked if investing in drone technology will stimulate the need of the hour, Suk said: “It’s reasonable to assume that the UAE is a pretty forward-thinking nation, which adopts the most modern trends and innovations with open arms. From our knowledge as an organization, we understand first-hand how interested the UAE is to work with drones and leverage their potential.”

Rabih Bou Rashid, CEO of Falcon Eye Drones Services (FEDS), had a comparable train of thought and stated that drones have always been linked with providing safety and security. The industry was already a booming one, with many recognizing the benefits to both health and safety and its effects on the economy.
