With computing power everywhere, there’s approximately 50-75 billion connected devices globally, this brand new communication pattern is developing in line with technology surrounding the Internet of Things (IoT).
The region’s governments have been increasingly investing in next-generation technologies such as IoT, in an effort to move their economies away from heavy reliance on oil. GCC countries, which lead in smart cities and smart government initiatives, will see high adoption of IoT for smart transportation. There are already examples of integration, like the driverless car powered by solar energy at Masdar City in Abu Dhabi.
Governments in the Middle East are also increasingly favouring automated mass transportation systems to ease traffic congestion in urban areas. $106 billion worth of public transport projects have been committed in MENA. Projects include the Dubai Metro expansion, Riyadh Metro construction and Hyperloop One linking Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Just like Baby Boomers shaped the recent past, the baton has now been handed over to Gen-Y ideas to transform the future, with technology very much at the forefront and, not just an option, but a necessity.
With heavy focus from the governments and contractors on incorporating new and innovative methods to improve tranportation technologies in the region, Gulf Traffic & TranspoTech provides you with an ideal platform to network and do business with a niche and high-value set of potential clientele from all over the region.
