Abstract—The main objective of this research project is to develop, implement and test an efficient real-time system for the allocation of patrol cars to various locations within the boundaries of the Abu Dhabi Emirate. Patrol cars are allocated initially to provide adequate coverage over a wide area that is divided into geographic zones. However, during daily operations the patrol cars move to deal with traffic accidents or calls for assistance originating from various locations in each zone. The proposed patrol allocation system is essentially an automated decision support system that relies on Geographic Information System (GIS) and other data related to current and real-time traffic flow to assist the dispatch operators in making effective patrol allocation decisions. The system also computes the number of patrol vehicles required in order to make sure that the response time falls below a given threshold or upper limit. The basic system concept and structure are presented.
