BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA), a 100% government-owned free zone, was established following with the mission of facilitating and promoting modern technology based industries supporting the region’s demand for business expansion. A full package of incentives and benefits are provided to companies operating within the free zone. Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) is a technology park and provides both a living and working integrated community.

 

The hi-tech ecosystem of DSO, which offers to its living and working community a plethora of advantages could not fall behind with regards to its smart mobility standards. Therefore, the DSO Authority in collaboration with DU, a leading telecommunications company, was in need of an intelligent traffic management solution for traffic analysing, monitoring and optimising of the area’s mobility that would transparently integrate with the management platform of Silicon Oasis.

 

Having successfully being applied in a series of smart mobility applications worldwide, Sensefields traffic management intelligence was selected as the ideal solution thanks to the very high accuracy rate that is over 99.5%, the quick installation and the easy integration with local traffic management systems.

 

Sensefields wireless magnetic sensors were easily and quickly installed transmitting real-time traffic flow information to Sensefields Data Processing Station – DPS that processes and analyses the collected data providing information about:

 

  • Speed
  • Vehicle classification by length
  • Traffic intensity
  • Level of occupancy
  • Time and distance difference between consecutive vehicles

 

The information is then sent to Sensefields traffic information management software, Fastrack, that allows for traffic data analysis, different stations data comparisons and alarm monitoring, among others offering a variety of advantages:

 

SENSEFIELDS SOLUTION
  • Uninterrupted operation with temperatures above 50⁰C and in adverse weather conditions such as sandstorms
  • Monitoring of 15,000 daily movements
  • Integration with DSO Smart Cities platform through API from Fastrack
  • Power supply of equipment through the existing infrastructure of part-time lampposts adapted to the image style of the technology center without causing any without visual impact
  • Data analytics for predictive models of behavior
APPLICATION BENEFITS

Thanks to Sensefields city traffic data collection, analysis and monitoring technology, the DSO Authority has now the capacity to analyse, plan and optimise the urban development of the area based on the behavior patterns and traffic trends relying on highly accurate data to further enhance the quality of life in Silicon Oasis.
