The United Arab Emirates is leading the transition to a smart and connected future and is taking a leadership position in Smart and Autonomous Mobility. H.H. Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has launched the Dubai Smart Autonomous Mobility Strategy where 25% of all journeys in Dubai would be transformed into driverless journeys by 2030.

Connected vehicles and intelligent transport applications have the potential to bring substantial benefits to consumers, including making travel safer, reducing congestion, and providing real time information to passengers. Some studies indicate that the Dubai Autonomous Mobility Strategy will generate economic dividends to the worth of AED 22 billion per annum, reduce the mobility expenditure by 44%, curb demand for parking by 50%, reduce carbon emissions by 12%, limit traffic accidents and associated losses by 12%, and enhance the happiness rating of residents by offering new mobility options.

However to achieve this, a coordinated and consorted effort between various government authorities, infrastructure developers, telecommunication companies and transport solution providers is essential.

It is against this dynamic background that Messe Frankfurt Middle East is organising the 2nd Smart Traffic Middle East Conference in Dubai. To be held on 8 – 9 May 2017 as a part of Automechanika Dubai exhibition, the conference will bring together top industry experts, analysts and thought leaders from automotive, technology, telecommunication, policy, research, infrastructure development and media to examine the future of intelligent integrated transportation in the region and how IoT technologies and connectivity will be at the heart of the transport sector in the future.

The key topical areas that the conference would focus on includes:

  • Intelligent Vehicle Technologies
  • Intelligent Transport Systems and Infrastructure
  • Connected Vehicles
  • Sustainable Transport
