Tadweer – Centre of Waste Management Abu Dhabi has installed the Aaber Smart Gate access control system at Al Dhafra Landfill to automate access and fee collection from waste transportation vehicles using the facility.
The smart gate seeks to save Tadweer customers time and effort and increase their satisfaction with its services through reducing waiting time at landfill gates, in addition to preventing human error, said Tadweer. The system utilises state-of-the-art technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), number plate recognition cameras and interactive displays that direct the vehicles’ movement automatically according to the types of waste and vehicle permits. Through effectively eliminating the need for human intervention and presence among waste collection vehicles, the smart gate enhances the health and safety of workers as well as customers entering the landfill.
“This ambitious project is part of Tadweer’s ongoing digital transformation, aimed at improving the quality and efficiency of its services. Through leveraging the latest technologies in service delivery, we support the Abu Dhabi government’s vision to become one of the best governments in the world,” said Dr Salem Al Kaabi, Acting General Manager of Tadweer.
He also noted that the Aaber Smart Gate enables efficient and foolproof vehicle authorisation. In line with its sustained efforts to provide best-in-class services to its customers, Tadweer plans to roll out the smart access control technology across other facilities, including landfills, waste transfer stations, incinerators and fertilizer plants.
As part of the scheme, the Licensing, Tariff and Customer Service Department at Tadweer has replaced the Aaber Pass with e-permits so that customers can obtain online without having to visit any of the centre’s branches.
Tadweer is the key government entity responsible for all activities related to the development of waste management services in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
