The 30th edition of the World Congress of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS World Congress) 2024 will be held for the first time in Dubai. The Emirate’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has place a successful bid following its nomination by ITS Europe.
“RTA is keen to keep abreast of the Government’s future directions of transforming Dubai into a smart, innovative and sustainable city that uses cutting-edge telecommunication and digital technologies. In this regard, RTA is proceeding ahead with the Dubai Smart Self-Driving Transport Strategy aimed at converting 25% of total mobility journeys in Dubai to smart self-driving journeys by 2030. As such, advancing the smart mobility is based on three elements: customer’s centricity, integrated and connected transport and driving innovation and public-private partnerships,” commented His Excellency Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, Director-General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA.
The event comes to Dubai after the organisation by RTA of the first edition of Dubai World Congress and Challenge for Self-Driving Transport, demonstrating the Emirate’s commitment to innovation in the sector.
