Dubai to promote autonomous vehicle technology

Saturday, 04 10 2021, Category: Technology, Country: U.A.E
Dubai’s transport authority says it wants a quarter of journeys in the UAE city to be smart and driverless by 2030, as it launches the second edition of its Dubai World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport competition.

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the World Economic Forum (WEF) to promote the strategic partnerships between the two parties, especially relevant to the Safe Drive Initiative Framework (SafeDI Framework) of the Forum. RTA says the MoU supports Dubai’s strategy to transform 25 per cent of total trips in the city into self-driving trips by year 2030.

Ahmed Hashem Bahrozyan, CEO of Public Transport Agency, and Head of the Self Driving Transport Congress and Dubai World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport Organising Committee, signed the MoU on behalf of RTA. Jeremy Jurgens, Managing Director and Member of the Managing Board of the World Economic Forum signed on behalf of the Forum.

“Under the MoU, RTA will develop a scenario-based Framework to assess the safety of autonomous vehicles, and provide the required information, technical support and training for the participants in the Dubai World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport. Thus, Dubai will be the first city in the world to adopt this Framework. The MoU enables the sharing of technical knowledge and experience at all levels,” said Bahrozyan.
