Etisalat is pushing boundaries of innovation with its spectacular digital showcase, signaling the new way forward for mobility and that was evident in this year’s GITEX Global.
GITEX is an annual consumer computer and electronics trade show, exhibition, and conference that takes place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
This years GITEX Gloabl waa sheld earlier in the year , with great innovations and technological step-up in all possible manners for a better tomorrow by utilizing the modern technical advancement.
This is in line with Etisalat’s continuous efforts to boost the Dubai Government strategy to boost the share of autonomous transport to as much as 25% of the full transportation within the emirate by 2030.
Autonomous technologies will get a boost with the 5G network enjoying the advantages of high speed and ultra-low latency influencing the event of self-driving automobiles making them faster, smarter and safer.
In recent times, the mobility sector has seen great innovation, change and disruption, with more energy to vary the world, user experience and related providers are enabling the future of mobility.
Electrical vehicles, mobility as a service, and autonomous driving are altering how we work and go on in our daily lives.
Etisalat’s goal is to drive the digital future by taking the lead in innovation to deliver futuristic technologies from around the globe to UAE and the region.
Making an entrance at GITEX this year was the Renault EZ-ULTIMO, a robo-vehicle geared up with level four autonomous driving functionality for a premium and immersive mobility experience.
Powered by an all-electric drive train, it might connect to city environments and highway infrastructure, and might drive itself with out human input both within the metropolis and on the highway.
Taking off from Etisalat’s stand is the Lazareth Flying Motorcycle, a four-wheeled mechanical sculpture around a 5.2-litre V8 Maserati engine. The flying motorcycle can convert from ride to fly mode in roughly 60 seconds.
One other crowd puller was the LIFT Aircraft’s Hexa drone-like aircraft that’s managed utilizing a joystick within the cockpit and stabilised by a flight computer. It weighs round 200kg, seats one particular person and has 18 set of propellers, motors and batteries.
In the event of an emergency, flight controllers can take over the aircraft and fly it remotely like a drone. The aircraft can travel simply more than 97kph at top pace and contains air-cushioned floats, permitting it to land on water if needed.
Visitors who wish to enjoy the ultimate freedom of a bird and intuitively discover the skies can head over to the Etisalat stand to experience a breathtaking and refreshing experience with Birdly.
In contrast to a typical flight simulator that requires a joystick, mouse and/or quite a few buttons, Birdly users command their full-body VR flight experience instinctively with arms and hands, embodying the feeling of being a bird.
The ‘WheeM-I’ (Wheelchairs Mobility Interface), a semi-autonomous electrical vehicle making travelling inside the metropolis simpler for individuals with a lightweight manual wheelchair, is making its presence for the first time globally.
Connected by way of an app, it can allow customers to interact with the machine, with other wheelchair users, and other means of transport and transport applications by way of an application programming interface.
Technological advancement has always been to make our lives better and more comfortable and we always need to look out for more such innovative ideas and its implementations.
