The Gulf Traffic Exhibition and Conference, which will take place 4-6 of December 2018 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.
With a key focus on ‘technology for smarter cities’ the MoID are speaking on day one and day two of the free-to-attend conference streams ‘AI for Transportation’ and ‘Future Infrastructure’ respectively.
Eng. Mirah Bin Hendi, Deputy Director of Federal Road Management at the MoID, will be looking 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. Eng. Daniel Llort and Eng. Soughah Salem, both Civil Engineers with the MoID, will be speaking on the morning of day two about performance-based maintenance contracts and what the future holds for this product support strategy, and how can this be better measured.
