The Gulf Region has been important to GEWI for many years. Since 2010, the Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) has been using TIC to process probe data from about 8,000 taxis in order to calculate traffic flow for the whole of Dubai. Calculation of traffic flow is augmented by use of data from fixed sensors. Based on the harmonized traffic flow TIC derives traffic events for those roadways. In addition, operators use TIC to create their own traffic events based on information captured on the traffic control room’s video wall. Finally, TMC messages are generated and broadcasted through RDS.
The Gulf Traffic Conference will be held at the Dubai International Convention & Exposition Center. Conference highlights include a presentation from the former Director of British Petroleum, an update on ITS from the Director of Transport for London and many free seminars on vehicle detection, traffic safety, logistics management and more.
If you would like to schedule a demonstration of GEWI’s TIC software features such those used by the RTA, or how TIC can be used on an iPad for mobile traffic data entry or the newest features such as real-time statistics, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
