MoID Among Regional Ministries to Participate at Gulf Traffic Exhibition Next Week

Key focus on Artificial Intelligence will drive conference, product launches at three-day event

The Gulf Traffic Exhibition and Conference, which will take place 9-11 of December 2019 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, is once again under the patronage of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Development (MoID) which aims to increase collaboration between transport suppliers and helps shape the direction of the events agenda and conference topics.

The 2019 conference agenda will be focusing on infrastructure, artificial intelligence in transportation, road safety, transpotech and parking. The MoID will be kicking off proceedings on day one with a session dedicated to ‘Artificial Eyes in Infrastructure.

Eng. Noura Ali Alhouli, Senior Architecture Engineer & Road Project Manager, MOID, will be delivering the session and will look at Innovation and Artificial Intelligence on road construction sites, and what trends are being seen when it comes to integrating AI for road safety uses.

Speaking ahead of the event next month, Eng. Ali Alhouli commented; “One of the projects I will be covering is our road asset management system (RAMS) for collecting data and analyzing our future needs. It collects data to improve the maintenance of the roads and can give insights and suggestions such as whether we should extend a two or three-lane road into one with six lanes. We’re always looking to integrate new devices to our RAMS.

We keep customizing our platforms according to our needs, and by 2021 we are hoping to have a fully functional Artificial Intelligence support programme which will link all of our business verticals together, allowing us better plan projects and react to on-the-ground issues.

As we push toward our 2021 vision of creating a sustainable and integrated infrastructure that supports the UAE’s global competitiveness, one of our main goals is to ensure we keep pace with global developments in the field of infrastructure. With the thought leadership discussions taking place over the three-day event, I believe Gulf Traffic will provide a lasting positive contribution to the future of the regions transport and infrastructure sectors.”

Other ministerial support for Gulf Traffic 2019 comes from the Ministry of Transport Saudi, Dubai Police and Federal Transport Authority – Land & Maritime.

“We are dedicated to bringing the world’s most exciting and forward-thinking products to the Gulf region, to drive the mobility sector and to make our cities smarter.

We are excited to have such fantastic support from key ministries across the GCC. Infrastructure and road safety are key issues across the region and having such strong support from associations and governing bodies reinforces the importance of this. We hope that Gulf Traffic can act as a catalyst for deliberation and discovery as well as providing a platform for the industry to showcase the latest innovations and smart tech set to drive the sector forward.” said Rahul Rawat, Exhibition Director – Gulf Traffic.

Gulf Parking, which is now entering its third edition, will again run adjacent to Gulf Traffic, further adding to the brands offering by widening the focus to support other key industry sectors. With a keen focus on smart mobility, Gulf Parking will cater to the latest in smart payment and intelligent access control solutions from across the world, creating a new avenue for companies to showcase their latest product range to the traffic and transport industries.
