Dubai gets smarter : Smart beaches introduced in Dubai


After living in Dubai for 10 years, I am still connected with Dubai, even though I am back in my country. Recently, Dubai Government took a great initiative of Eco-friendly Smart beaches.

The concept is simple, but takes lot of effort and time, Installing Wind Mills, Smart Changing Rooms , Free Wi-Fi access and Smart Palm trees at Dubai Beaches. So, how it works :

  • Smart Changing Rooms : These are not like ordinary Changing Rooms, but equipped with Lockers with code. So that the visitors can keep the valuable in safe custody.
  • Smart Palm Trees : Free Wi-fi access will be provided at the Dubai Beaches. The Stations will be in the shape of Palm trees and will cater 50 persons at a time, over a radius of 50 meters. These stations will provide complete information about Dubai, Weather and other Tourist information. These stations will also be equipped with Charging points for Smartphones and Gadgets.
  • Power generation : All these structures will be powered by Mono Crystal Solar Panels / Wind Poles.

Speaking to Gulf News, Obaid Al Shamsi, assistant director general of Dubai Municipality, explained that the smart beaches project will provide beach goers with hi-tech services and incorporate environmentally-friendly features.

Hussain Lootah, director general of Dubai Municipality, said: “Under the guidance of our leaders, Dubai has developed an international reputation as a place for technology and innovation.

“Through Smart Palm, the public will be able to benefit from free direct access to the internet while providing valuable public information covering a range of topics including weather forecasts and orientation guides. Most importantly, these structures are entirely self-sufficient thanks to their mono crystal solar panels, which provide up to 21 per cent efficiency.”

The Pilot Project will be carried out at Umm Suqeim 2, Jumeirah and Al Mamzar.
