The Abu Dhabi Police have tested a new technology that will allow them to use drones to locate missing people.

The technology, which was developed by the UAE University, could be used for helping people in emergencies and to find residents if they get lost in remote areas.

A search and rescue team at the police's central operations tested the technology as a part of its measures to improve emergency services. It was tested based on international quick response standards to emergencies.

According to a statement issued by the police on Monday, the technology is in line with the UAE government's vision to upgrade police services.

Colonel Mohammed Ibrahim Al Ameri, head of the emergency and public safety department, stressed the importance of using drones in rescue operations. This technology, he said, reduces human error.

He praised the police's relationship with universities and research centers.
