The QU Wireless and Innovations Center in Qatar has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Mowasalat to develop an intelligent traffic monitoring system (ITMS) in the region.

The MOU concerns the development of an efficient transportation system in the country, in which ITMS will be a key element.

The new system will use multiple sources of data collected from fixed and mobile sensors and then process it to generate near-real-time traffic information.

This information will be used for various applications, such as travel time and trip planning, which will be delivered to end users through wireless applications.
