Dubai’s Al Mamzar Beach Park has gone smart with a host of first-of-its-kind facilities.
Apart from the smart gates using Roads and Transport Authority’s Nol cards to avoid queuing up for tickets, the park now has an exclusive mobile app to facilitate its visitors. Park visitors can use the app to take a virtual tour of the facilities, and book their favourite chalet, grill area, event spaces, and sports areas before heading out there. To ensure visitors breathe even cleaner air, the amphitheatre area has been painted with Smart Paint that reduces air pollution by absorbing carbon dioxide.
More than 10 solar-powered smart benches will provide free WiFi and wireless charging service for mobile phones.
A waterproof smart watch with GPS will be provided to help families track children and people of determination inside the park. Caretakers can pair them with their smartphones and monitor their movement.
Two Smart Oasis hubs by the beach provide shading and a system to harvest humid air and convert it into drinking water using solar power. The Smart Oasis can produce 90 litres of drinking water every day. It also provides a charging area for smartphones and a cooling system using spray technology.
Smart containers named “Big Belly” send out alerts when it is time to clear up the rubbish.
