Bayanat, which provides AI-powered geospatial solutions, is collaborating with DRIFTx, for creating smart and autonomous vehicle applications

DRIFTx is an international platform and event for smart, autonomous, and sustainable urban mobility across air, land, and sea. According to Bayanat, the partnership will help Abu Dhabi to become a global hub for smart vehicles.

Supported by the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO), DRIFTx will help thought leaders and innovators to explore and showcase the latest in smart, autonomous, and sustainable mobility, while also serving as a gateway for collaboration with key players within Abu Dhabi’s Smart & Autonomous Vehicle Industry (SAVI) cluster.

Bayanat and DRIFTx will collaborate to bring together global pioneers and leaders from the smart and autonomous mobility space to Abu Dhabi. The platform will give space to discussions on the latest mobility solutions through its DRIFTx Showcase exhibition, and networking sessions amongst multi-nationals, regulators, academia, and the global start-up community.

Bayanat will display its breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, real-time computing, digital twins, and digital mapping at DRIFTx, which is vital for the safe operation of autonomous vehicles. The showcase will include Bayanat’s state-of-the-art autonomous taxis by TXAI, robo-mini buses, and drones by Mira Aerospace, demonstrating the practical applications of autonomous systems currently operational on Yas Island and Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi.

Abdulla Al Shamsi, chief operating officer of Bayanat, said, “This partnership epitomises our commitment to leveraging innovative and eco-friendly solutions to reshape society. We are particularly excited to be an Anchor Partner in SAVI's DRIFTx event, a landmark initiative that aligns with the UAE's vision of leading the charge in the evolution of autonomous mobility. This inaugural event is more than a technological showcase; it's a testament to the UAE's dedication to being at the forefront of transformative technology. At Bayanat, we are enthusiastic about advancing this journey alongside SAVI, as we collectively strive towards a future where innovation, sustainability, and groundbreaking technology redefine the possibilities of our world and region.”         

Namir Hourani, managing director of GMOLx, organisers of DRIFTx, said, "We are thrilled to welcome Bayanat as the exclusive Anchor Partner of DRIFTx. Their expertise in geospatial intelligence and autonomous technology will significantly enrich the event’s programme and showcase. This partnership supports our collective vision to drive the Smart and Autonomous Vehicle Industry cluster which aims to bring the brightest minds and groundbreaking innovations to Abu Dhabi, strengthening the city’s position as a dynamic hub for advanced urban mobility. Together with our partners, ADIO, SAVI, and Bayanat, DRIFTx is where the future of smart, autonomous, and sustainable urban mobility becomes reality."
