Mobility has become a critical factor instrumental in making a city smarter, sustainable and resilient.

Our world has never been more connected than in this day and age. Approximately 11 billion devices are connected to the Internet at present and this number is likely to triple by 2020 and by 2025, 80 billion devices will be connected to the Internet.

Carrying forward this blazing trend, most countries in the Middle East have placed smart city initiatives at the heart of their future development plans in some shape or form.  The Middle East and Africa (MEA) will invest more than $6.6 billion in Internet of Things (IoT) hardware, software, services, and connectivity in 2016 – which is expected to increase to $14.3 billion by 2020. And, transportation is one of the vertical industries leading in terms of IoT investments in the region.
