Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) hosted the Ericsson Mobility Day, a knowledge sharing event that brought together thought leaders from transport authorities, cities, private companies and ITS-consultants from Europe and Middle East and Africa, at Sofitel the Palm in Dubai on May 11, 2017.
During the event, Ericsson discussed the topic of how smart connectivity and the Internet of Things (IOT) can enable the ecosystem needed for new mobility services and automated transport.
“The world around us is changing, we are witnessing increasing urbanization and with it comes increasing traffic management issues. However, technology can provide the answers we need to make more effective use of our roads. The transport sector is about to be revolutionized by being connected. Ericsson Mobility Day brings together industry and government leaders to discuss ways in which we can transform mobility and transportation, not only from a technology perspective, but from a travel behavior one too,” said Wojciech Bajda, Head of Industry and Society Unit at Ericsson Middle East.
