RTA signs up Ericsson for smart transportation

Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) has signed an agreement with Ericsson for deployment of its innovative Regulatory Monitoring System which will help transform and regulate the future of public transportation in the emirate.

Ericsson, a world leader in communications technology and services with headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden, said the agreement will allow RTA to introduce the regulatory monitoring system that will provide greater consistency, transparency and security for the authority.

At the same time, it will help ensure high standards of services for public and private hire facilities in Dubai, it added.
 
Ericsson’s offerings as part of the agreement will provide RTA with integrated Cloud solutions based on a combination of suites including Advanced Transport Analytics, Connected Vehicle Cloud, Fleet Management products, services and processes.

This new agreement will have a major impact on the RTA’s end user experience once the services are launched, and it will also further develop the Dubai Smart Transportation Services, remarked Adel Shakri, the director of public transportations systems at RTA.

"We are pleased to be working once again with Ericsson, as Smart ITS system is the future of transportation in Dubai and we strive to enhance the experience for our customers. It marks as an exciting meeting point between traditional transport and the new products and services that are emerging," remarked Shakri

"It offers us a unique opportunity to revolutionise our transport system, which is constantly demanded by the people of Dubai," he added.

Wojciech Bajda, the head of Industry and Society Unit at Ericsson (Middle East) said RTA’s transport system is driven by the needs of the people who move around the city and this transformation is the foundation for the future of Dubai’s smart transport system.

"Our latest agreement with RTA, will deliver innovative and efficient services that will keep up with the current demand and growth of the market, and create a true multi-modal multi-agency transportation network to serve the general public of Dubai, in line with the Smart City Vision of the UAE," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
