Jeddah streets get bar code tag system signs

Jeddah Municipality started rolling out its newly designed street signs with QR code tag system.
Visitors and residents will be able to learn of a street name, location and GPS coordinates by taking a snap shot using their smart phone reader.
“The signs have already been mounted at number Jeddah’s districts,” said undersecretary for projects and urban construction at the Jeddah mayor’s office Ibrahim Kutub Khana. “This includes Basateen, Muhamadia, Naeem and Salamh. These new signs includes a property’s GPS coordinates, street name and location inside the district. To make locating and navigating in Jeddah more easier and convenient visitors and residents.”
By pointing their smart phones at the QR code tag, all the information is stored inside a database. The information can be accessed through satellite positioning systems.
Plans are also under way for installing additional new signs in more of the city’s districts.
