Axilion Smart Mobility has announced its expansion into the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) with the launch of its regional headquarters in Dubai.
As the digital revolution unlocks new opportunities, the AI-based traffic management company is reimagining what is possible for mobility through its Digital Twin technology, which takes a digital replica of a city’s road traffic network to empower cities. The company is merging the physical and virtual worlds to create less congested, safer, and citizen-friendly streets.
Dubai is an ideal hub for Axilion to carry out its well-timed expansion plans, as the city continues to progress in its strategy towards becoming a world-leading smart and sustainable city of the future, and with the UAE Vision 2021 National Agenda aiming to make the UAE the safest place in the world.
The strategic location of Axilion’s HQ reflects Dubai’s ambitions to be the happiest city on earth by embracing technology innovation, making a more seamless, safe, efficient, and personalized city experience for all residents and visitors.
Axilion’s technology utilizes dynamic sensors to provide up-to-date 360-degree visibility of a city’s traffic network. The real-time data drives the creation of the city’s Digital Twin. The virtual mirroring of the physical city enables city-wide mobility to be immediately analyzed, with traffic signal timing optimized and traffic systems transformed to dynamic and adaptive networks.
The result? Improved city-wide mobility for all travelers. Motorists, cyclists, pedestrians, and those taking public transport experience smoother travel and shorter commute times of up to 40%, while everyone also benefits from reduced carbon emissions and safer streets. By leveraging current infrastructure, Axilion also helps cities to remain cost-efficient.
Axilion’s new Dubai office will support the company’s growth in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, other GCC countries, and Egypt.
