Abu Dhabi’s Integrated Transport Center (ITC) has joined forces with mobility data platform Vianova to provide data insights and analysis for the city’s shared micromobility scene.

The ITC is a government entity of the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) in Abu Dhabi.

Vianova’s geo-intelligence and customisable dashboards will enable ITC officials to access real-time data and analytics on connected shared mobility vehicles, including e-scooters and e-bikes. 

This will be used to monitor shared vehicles and improve infrastructure across the UAE capital, as part of Vianova’s aim to become the biggest data platform in the region for micromobility. 

The ITC is one of a number of transport authorities that have recently signed deals with Vianova, including Paris-based RATP and Berlin’s BVG. 

“This is because Vianova leverages IoT and data from millions of vehicles in cities across the world to provide stakeholders with the most advanced geo-intelligence of its kind,” Andrea Civitarese, Head of Business Expansion for the Middle East at Vianova, told Zag Daily.  

In Brussels, Vianova enabled the creation of 120 new geofenced slow-speed, no-go and incentivised parking hubs for riders. The infrastructure reduced pavement clutter and street patrols by 30%, saving resources and improving public opinion of shared mobility.

“With 80% of residents living in cities across the UAE, there is a concerted effort to reduce carbon emissions and enable residents and visitors to access safe and functional micromobility, from e-scooters to e-bikes,” added Civitarese.

Zag produced a special report mapping micromobility’s progress in the Middle East, which showed that the region has embraced light electric vehicles in order to reach pressing net-zero targets and reduce congestion and pollution in cities. International operators such as Tier, Bird, and Lime have launched in the region, as well as home-grown players such as on-demand transport provider Fenix
