Etisalat technology to support autonomous driving in Dubai

Telecom major, Etisalat, has been displaying new autonomous car models at Technology Week at the Dubai World Centre. The Tesla Model X, for example, was showcased connected with Etisalat’s M2M Control Centre and M2M & IoT Command Centre. This is line with the Dubai Autonomous Transportation Strategy intention to transform 25 per cent of total transportation in Dubai to driverless modes by 2030.

Dr Ahmed bin Ali, senior vice-president corporate communication, Etisalat Group, said that the company’s objective was to drive the digital future by taking the lead in innovation bringing futuristic technologies from around the world to UAE and the region.

He said of the initiative that

“This year we have again unveiled the connected car platform with Tesla, which highlights Etisalat’s connected car platform designed to meet the growing consumer demand for revolutionary technologies and help the automobile industry to launch futuristic platforms and vehicles.”

Other vehicles included on the Etisalat stand were the Rinspeed Etos Concept Car and the Mercedes-Benz F015.

In 2015, Etisalat and Japanese automobile giant Nissan joined hands to introduce the Middle East’s first connected car deployment. That global launch of the ‘Nissan SmartCar’ mobile application during Dubai International Motor Show 2015 has marked the beginning of the connected-car ecosystem in the Middle East.

The following year, Etisalat signed a agreement with Toyota Tsusho at Gitex for collaboration in delivering “scalable, secure, interoperable and intuitive connected” car solutions and experiences to customers.

All these developments underscore the leading role of Etisalat in the UAE connected car market with all top leaders of the car industry.
