Qatar will host the Autonomous e-Mobility Forum, a pioneering multilateral platform focusing on driverless e-Mobility, at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC), Doha from April 30 to May 2.
Hosted and strategically partnered by the Ministry of Transport of the State of Qatar, and held under the patronage of Jassim Saif Ahmed Al-Sulaiti, Minister of Transport, the forum is organised by Just us & Otto Marketing & Event Services in collaboration with InStrat, a department of 4th Dimension.
The three-day event will provide a timely occasion for international stakeholders to further know-how and develop recommendations toward the implementation of autonomous e-Mobility in a real-world setting, it was revealed at a press conference held to announce the details of the forum.
The forum will attract more than 40 speakers from 20 countries from around the world, including policy makers, representatives of government agencies, academics, industry experts, engineers, consultants and prominent leaders, to present their visions and ideas and exchange experiences on a number of important topics in the field of electric transportation and self-driving mobility during the forum’s activities. This gives participants a unique opportunity to benefit from their experiences and knowledge.
The forum will include keynote speeches, presentations and panel discussions with the participation of a group of experts, in addition to an accompanying exhibition highlighting the innovations of international and regional companies involved in this field, making the forum a unified platform for dialogue and exchange of ideas about the potential of autonomous technology and e-mobility ecosystems and their impact on societies in the world from the perspective of Technology, research and policy.
MOT’s Acting Assistant Undersecretary of Land Transport Affairs Eng Hamad Essa Abdulla, said: “The world faces a critical turning point with regard to fulfilling the pressing need for sustainable transportation solutions. Autonomous e-vehicles are among the promising alternatives in this field. They represent a paradigm shift and transformative trend in the area of transportation since the future of e-vehicles complies with global sustainability efforts as they can help reduce emissions, enhance energy consumption efficiency, and provide innovative mobility solutions, something which significantly contributes to combating climate change.”
In step with that global trend, he added, Qatar has gone a long way in implementing the strategy of the gradual transitioning to e-vehicles and expanding their use. More than 70% of public bus fleet has been transitioned to electric and the plan is to increase that percentage gradually to 100% by 2030, he said. – TradeArabia News Service
