PTV Group, a market leader in traffic and logistics software solutions, collaborated with Tatweer to set up a real-time system that enables law enforcement authorities in the UAE to effectively manage their car dispatches to respond to emergencies.

In the Logistics business field, group’s portfolio ranges from software for scheduling transport routes and trips to distribution planning and fleet management, including truck navigation and parking. A special online service provides real-time transparency during the transport process and across the entire supply chain.

According to Dr Atef M Garib, CEO, Tatweer: “Faster response times in crisis and emergency management are key as time can save lives. Most people do not know about the important role of dispatchers who direct emergency response cars to help the people who have called the dispatch centre for help. Operators play a key role in making sure cars are dispatched and reach the incident destination on time avoiding traffic congestion delays. We worked with PTV Group to implement PTV Optima and PTV Hyperpath softwares to optimise response time to emergencies by dispatch vehicles.”

Andrea Petti, Managing Director, PTV Group, says: “Our software helps authorities with real-time traffic situational awareness, traffic forecast and route optimization to allow emergency vehicles to reach the emergency site as soon as possible.Using the software, they can track locations, calculate distances and provide the operators with the relevant estimated time of arrival.” PTV Optima software components provide real time traffic information with an ability to forecast the traffic flow.
