http://www.thenational.ae/opinion/editorial/high-tech-safety-on-the-roads - It is worth noting that The National newspaper is a government owned publication by the MDC-PJSC Mubadala Development Company PJSC (Mubadala) was established in October 2002 as a Public Joint Stock Company and is a wholly owned investment vehicle of the Government of Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates. Mubadala’s mandate is to facilitate the diversification of Abu Dhabi’s economy. Its focus is on managing long-term, capital-intensive investments intended to deliver strong financial returns and tangible social benefits for the Emirate. Can we be confident then that the article in the link above is de facto government policy if the newspaper is a govt mouthpiece? I hope so
What we need now is to secure a JV partnership with a very well respected, influential and wealthy family in that area who have many business interests and a very good relationship with the government and the ruling family. Then they will literally push the product across the whole of the UAE with government support......watch this space ;)
RE: UAE - SEE

The locomotives are 3,400kW SD70ACSAerial View of Al Mirfa site. [online] models designed and manufactured by Electro-Motive Diesel of North America. These have AC traction motors and are custom-built for desert conditions with pulse filtration and ventilation systems to control fine blown sand. Similar locomotives are already in use on Saudi Arabian Railways. The 100-tonne capacity wagons for phase one are top loading / bottom discharge with sealed hatches. They are supplied by the China South Locomotive and Rolling Stock Corporation Limited (CSR). The first of these wagons arrived in the UAE in December last year. Caterpillar trains......
Like a partnership with a global company is small fry.. This feels like a partnership with a state.... I am sitting back and watching this unfold. Adding more when I can... Have felt a lot more confident since the results. ...GLA

'Fatigue affects drivers’ concentration and can cause serious accidents. If found to be successful, Dubai’s new bus safety scheme should be rolled out across the country – and not just on buses.
