New driverless car technology to be tested in the UAE

The Roadway, Transportation, and Traffic Safety Research Centre (RTTSRC) at United Arab Emirates University has announced that it is working on a new intelligent transportation system to enable driverless cars to communicate on the roads.

A research team, led by professor Yaser E Hawas, director of the RTTSRC, has worked on the project funded by the university in collaboration with Tata Consulting Group for six years, a statement said.

The plan for the inter-vehicular communication system is based on an algorithm that enables vehicles to use real-time route guidance in urban traffic networks and is now ready to be tested, the statement said.

Hawas said: “The wow factor is we are now collaborating with Tata and we are going to have a deployment test in Al Ain. We are going to equip six vehicles to do the field testing – each vehicle is going to send information to the other vehicles – and we are then going to see how this information is going to be propagated.” More info
