Dubai's RTA extends partnership with Ericsson to transform Dubai's public transportation system
  • Ericsson’s connected platform solutions will enable RTA enhance the regulations of public transportation in Dubai.
  • Data extracted from the enhanced RMS will contribute to shaping the UAE’s national growth and development efforts.

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has extended its partnership with Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) to modernize the Regulatory Monitoring System (RMS) from on-premise to a secured local public cloud environment. As RTA taxis around the city are integrated with new digital technologies, the connected vehicle platform will enable RTA to enhance the regulations of public transportation in Dubai.

Modernizing RTA’s Regulatory Monitoring System will help extract beneficial data on the utilization of public transit systems in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This data, coupled with the data on tourism traffic the system provides, will contribute to shaping the UAE’s national growth and development efforts in line with the UAE Smart City Vision. The collaboration will also allow operators of luxury vehicles like limousines to offer enhanced services in a secure and controlled manner.

As part of the existing partnership, Ericsson provides RTA with integrated cloud solutions that comprise of Connected Vehicle Cloud, Advanced Transport Analytics, and Fleet Management products, services, and processes. Helping RTA provide a better end-user experience, Ericsson’s modernization of the RMS is set to further develop and enhance Smart Transportation Services in Dubai.

Khaled Al Awadhi, Director, Transportation Systems from Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority says: “Working with Ericsson on modernizing the RMS will help us simplify the management of our connected vehicle systems. By enhancing cloud and virtualization systems in the public transportation domain, we will not only help enhance the experience of our drivers and passengers but will also help Dubai realize a smart and connected future faster.”

As connectivity changes the automotive ecosystem and the way drivers interact with their vehicles, the automotive industry requires scalable, secure, and flexible cloud platforms that enables fast-paced service innovation. Ericsson’s Connected Vehicle Cloud allows automakers and fleet operators to securely offer connected services at a global scale and manage connectivity throughout the entire lifecycle of the vehicle.

Wojciech Bajda, Vice President and Head of Gulf Council Countries at Ericsson Middle East and Africa says: “Ericsson has worked with the RTA to develop and implement the first Internet of Things (IoT)-based transportation system in the region. By providing the best-in-class cloud services, we aim to help RTA operate in a transparent and secure cloud environment and also facilitate the digital transformation of RTA’s connected fleet. As the nation races towards achieving a smart, digital and sustainable future, we are committed to providing the solutions that help Dubai remain one of the top connected cities in the world in line with the Smart City Vision of the UAE.”

Ericsson has been helping automakers and fleet operators leverage software and connectivity since 2012 and has connected over 5.5 million vehicles across 150 countries to date.
