Nayan, Smart Imaging, Beemcar, Quantstamp, Elmodis, Openledger APS, and Audace Labs picked in DFA’s 6th Cohort
Dubai Future Foundation has selected nine startups – including Nayan, Beemcar, Quantstamp, Elmodis, Openledger APS, and Audace Labs – to work on a series of future projects in collaboration with Dubai Police, Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), and Etisalat, as part of the first round of Dubai Future Accelerators’ (DFA) 6th Cohort.
Nayan, one of the companies to collaborate with the Dubai Police, will work on monitoring traffic violations by using mass outsourcing solutions to collect, process, and evaluate road data and provide drivers with information about the routes they follow.
Dubai Police will also collaborate with Space Imaging, a company that offers products and services ranging from image collection and processing to providing a specialised database.
Meanwhile, RTA will work with Beemcar, a transportation company, to develop future technologies that can help reduce time and cost associated with the construction and maintenance of roads infrastructure.
The government entity will also work with Quantstamp, a company specialising in smart security systems to improve performance, monitoring, and implementation.
Etisalat will collaborate with five companies, including Elmodis, which specialises in energy efficiency and the operation of industrial electric machines by providing platforms that allow manufacturers and end-users to remotely monitor the performance of their devices.
Through its collaboration with Openledger APS and Audace Labs, Etisalat will deploy blockchain and internet of things to develop personnel management systems, operational efficiency, and service levels.
Thirty companies from the UAE, UK, US, Spain, Denmark, Poland, Finland, France, India, Chile, Japan, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Sweden, and Ukraine are participating in the sixth cohort to come up with systems that can tackle challenges put forth by government entities.
According to UAE state news agency, Wam, Dubai Future Foundation’s executive director of future design and acceleration, Saeed Al Falasi, said: “This fruitful cooperation between government and private entities is a key step toward accelerating the implementation of these innovative solutions, and it stands as a clear example of Dubai’s continuous success in employing advanced technologies in providing revolutionary services that meet current and future requirements.”
