Street signs in Abu Dhabi will soon include QR codes that can be recognized by smartphones.

These barcodes will provide smartphone users with information of a historical and background nature.
They will first be implemented by the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City in the capital, and are being developed as part of the Abu Dhabi Emirate Street Addressing, GeoNames and Signage System (ADAGS), which aims to uniquely identify addresses and streets in the emirate.


“The new addressing system is expected to vastly improve how businesses and residences are referenced. In addition, emergency response times will also be reduced, because ambulance and fire teams will be able to locate homes easier, for instance. Utilities can also be set up and serviced easier if providers can easily identify the neighbourhood and its consumption,” said Dr Abdullah Gareeb, director of the land and property sector at the DMA.
“Moreover, the new addresses will make online shopping and delivery more convenient,” he added.

This new system will not only help to straighten out the confusion, but it will use QR codes for the further identification and information about the current names as well as the historical ones.
