Zeina Nazer, secretary general of ITS-Arab with Pablo Garcia of Schneider Electric
“The ITS World Congress provides a great networking platform to support our members and report on the latest development on ITS products and solutions,” says Zeina Nazer, Secretary General of ITS-Arab.
Several ITS-Arab members will be exhibiting at the World Congress and at Gulf Traffic, which is taking place in Abu Dhabi on November 19-21 and which ITS-Arab is endorsing.
ITS-Arab is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting a partnership between transport professionals, decision makers, research/academic institutions and industry with the aim of facilitating the development and deployment of ITS technologies in the Arab world.
One company that has been involved in several flagship ITS projects in the region is Schneider Electric, which became a Gold Member of ITS-Arab at the World Congress.
Among the projects with which Schneider Electric has been involved is a new intelligent transportation system on the Makkah – Jeddah Expressway for Dallah Trans Arabia, for Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of the Interior.
The project is part of the efforts of the Saudi authorities to enhance facilities for the annual Haj pilgrimage, which brings more than three million foreign pilgrims to Makkah. It will help traffic authorities to allow passage of authorized vehicles during the peak Haj days while improving mobility within the area.
