His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, inaugurated the Dubai Intelligent Traffic Systems Centre constructed by (RTA). The facility is considered one of the biggest and most sophisticated traffic control centres worldwide in terms of smart technology use and the management of traffic systems.

The Centre’s sophisticated hi-tech systems connect Dubai’s traffic control system with field devices (iTraffic), providing an integrated technology platform for collecting and analysing big data, besides supporting instant decisions for the management of traffic movement and mega-events such as Expo 2020. His Highness attended a briefing by Al Tayer about the expansion and improvement of the intelligent traffic systems project, one of the deliverables of the Route 2020 Lab. The Centre is fitted with advanced traffic control systems (iTraffic) enhanced with artificial intelligence as well as big data analysis and decision-making support tools. It also facilitates the management of traffic movement and links the Dubai neighbourhood apart from integrating with the Enterprise Command and Control Centre. A total of 60 Emiratis have been qualified and deployed to manage and operate the system after completing specialist training courses in all systems, processes and technologies as well as maintenance and system support procedures.
