Sowmya Yellappa and Oliver Bull, managers of Mobility Live Middle East, have visited the Testing Centre in Sharjah. This is a key event for the region in the field of modern transport technology. The show will be held on 15–16 May, in 2023
Sandrine Bouic Petit, Yacoub AL Tahtamouni, Mohammed Bani Hammad, the representatives of the Sharjah Technology Research Park, also accompanied the guests.
During the tour, the delegates were shown the Centre's key facilities: the certified tropical Unicar, the high-speed model of the string transport, the mock-up of a linear city, and the dispatch room. The guests also took a test drive on the 400-meter track.
In addition, the guests attended a presentation on the project and highlighted the benefits of implementing the string transport. For example:
― Development of hard-to-reach areas and development of international transport networks.
― Increase of the country's and the region's GDP, creation of new jobs in almost all sectors of the economy.
― Improved urban, regional and global ecology.
Oliver Bull shared his impressions of the Testing Centre:
It is an honour for me to tour the uSky Transport FZE facilities and see first-hand what the future of mobility might look like.
