Bayanat, Imkan team up for smart mobility infrastructure at SHA Island

Bayanat, a leading provider of AI-powered geospatial and smart mobility solutions, has joined hands with  Abu Dhabi-based Imkan Properties for the development of a smart mobility infrastructure project on SHA Island Emirates at AlJurf within the UAE capital. 
The groundbreaking project will feature an integrated and AI-enabled transportation ecosystem that allows for fully autonomous driving on the world’s first healthy living island.
Located in AlJurf, approximately halfway between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, the health- and wellness-focused island, which will also be home to the SHA Wellness Clinic, aims to be highly autonomous with minimal reliance on manned vehicles. 
As per the deal, Imkan Properties will be developing the project’s physical infrastructure, while Bayanat will provide the critical digital infrastructure for the operation of autonomous vehicles and unmanned systems, such as HD maps and HD positioning, as well as deploy its smart mobility solutions (SMOS) in the form of its digital twin solutions, which makes vehicle autonomy on the island possible. 
Bayanat's digital twin technology will play a pivotal role in supporting Imkan Properties' vision for SHA Island Emirates by providing an advanced virtual replica of the island's entire infrastructure. 
This technology will enable real-time monitoring and management of autonomous transportation systems, ensuring seamless and efficient operations without human intervention. 
Bayanat's digital twin will facilitate predictive maintenance, optimize traffic flow, and enhance the safety and reliability of the autonomous vehicles, said the developer. 
This integration not only supports the creation of a sustainable and autonomous transport network but also aligns with the island's commitment to health and wellness by promoting an autonomous vehicle environment, it added.
On the new project, Bayanat Chief Operating Officer Abdulla Al Shamsi said: "We are excited about this joint project with Imkan Properties, which will combine our expertise to create a unique concept globally – a healthy-living island featuring autonomous vehicles." 
Bayanat has long been a pioneer of autonomous driving and unmanned systems in the Middle East, with a proven track record of technological capability and know-how including Autonomous Solutions, Cloud Infrastructure, Digital Twins, Charging Infrastructure, Transportation Super Apps, and Testing and Simulation, stated Al Shamsi after signing the agreement with Suwadain AlDhaheri, the CEO at Imkan Properties in the presence of senior officials.
"We’re confident that this partnership will revolutionize the way we live, work and thrive in our communities," he added.
Announced earlier in the year, SHA Island Emirates at AlJurf offers an entirely new residential model for the region centered on wellness, ensuring that every resident enjoys the highest standard of well-being and tranquility. 
The exclusive island integrates a range of beachfront residences, a health resort, as well as multiple pavilions dedicated to health and wellbeing which will position AlJurf as the leading destination in health and wellness tourism.
Al Shamsi said: "We believe that the island’s transport infrastructure will play an integral role in enabling this objective. Our long-standing expertise in developing smart mobility solutions, which includes EV infrastructure, will allow us to create a quiet, clean and reliable transportation infrastructure on the island."
"Our commitment to sustainable development aligns seamlessly with Imkan Properties' strategy of crafting destinations that prioritise environmental stewardship and holistic well-being," he stated. 
"Together, we are poised to transform this island into a symbol of sustainable living, where cutting-edge technology and eco-conscious design converge to create a thriving community for generations to come," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
