Abu Dhabi: The first Mobility Education Summit, an international initiative started by the UAE, has succeeded in bringing up a lot of relevant topics to discussion.
Mobility experts from across the world discussed a variety of topics relating to the future of mobility, including raising awareness of safe driving practices, lowering the frequency of traffic accidents, training in the metaverse, smart testing techniques, and sustainability in mobility.
The event, held from November 14th to 16th, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, targets driving schools from across the globe and examines how they might advance to offer more assistance and teaching to future generations.
Professor Ahmed Ali Murad, Associate Provost for Research at UAE University, established a clear link between mobility and national success when by remarking that, “Without highly mobile and effective transportation infrastructures, a country’s prosperity could not be completely realized.” As per studies, boosting travel times by 10 percent would boost the labor market by 15 percent and the city’s labor productivity by 3 percent High mobility thus reflects both quality of life and overall wellbeing.
“On the other hand, the expanded markets would help expand business and create more jobs and opportunities. Improved mobility provides access to better jobs. Modern societies require better mobility. If people can’t move with comfort and safety, their ability to be active and productive will be limited,” Mr. Ahmed Ali Murad added.
In addition, elaborating on the Smart Driving Test Project, Lt. Colonel Fahad Al-Arefi, Deputy Director of the Drivers Licensing Department, Abu Dhabi Police, declared that the Abu Dhabi Police General Command – Drivers and Vehicles Licensing Directorate launched the Smart Driving Test Project.
