Intel, Huawei work towards smarter transport
Collaboration aims to enhance public transportation and passenger experience
Huawei and Intel Corporation have announced a memorandum of understanding to introduce smarter transport solutions, in line with the government's vision of making Dubai the smartest and happiest city in the world.
Intel will provide its X86 platform in Huawei's Internet of Thing's (IoT) gateway designed for the Smart Bus solution. The Smart Bus aims to address the evolving public transportation needs including school buses, public buses, law enforcement and emergency response vehicles.
This will enable an array of smart services, such as in-vehicle video surveillance, accurate passenger tracking, emergency services communication, real-time health data analysis of the vehicle and multi-media entertainment services for the passenger.
Furthermore, the collaboration between Huawei and Intel plans to reduce costs and resource consumption, engage with people in the community and enhance performance and public well-being through IoT deployments.
Huawei Smart Bus solution is part of its Smart City solutions that deliver expertise in end-to-end network planning and the development of cutting-edge technologies. These include mobile broadband infrastructure and communication technology to niche industry applications and data centre innovations.
The Smart Bus is showcased at Intel's Ignition Lab in Dubai Technology Entrepreneurship Centre located in Dubai Silicon Oasis.
Huawei has deployed an extensive range of mobile broadband technology including 4G (LTE) across the world for nearly 40 telecom operators in Asia, the Middle East, North America, South America, Western Europe, Russia and Africa.
