With everything going digital, it was only a matter of time before number plates and vehicle registration also became digitised. While the digitisation of number plates may not happen tomorrow, there are several countries in the world already exploring the possibility including the UK and UAE.
Once the program rolls out, drivers can expect real-time traffic updates from their smart number plate as well as information about the changing conditions on the road. These plates will also be able to warn you if there is an accident on the road, allowing you to easily avoid unnecessary delays. In addition they will have a feature that allows you to communicate with other drivers on the road in real-time, which if for nothing else, may eliminate the many instances of road rage. But perhaps their most important feature is the ability to contact emergency services in real-time.
