Dubai: Aspiring to become the benchmark for Smart Cities

DOWNTOWN DUBAI is one of the most popular parts of Dubai

Dubai has begun its Smart City project to collaborate with leading public and private organisations to meet the needs of all residents and visitors through a connected and responsive citywide infrastructure – focusing on areas such as life, transportation, society, economy, governance and environment. The smart Dubai Initiative was launched to support the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, for Dubai to become the Smartest city in the world.

According to Dr Aisha Butti Bin Bishr, Assistant Director General of The Executive Office and SmartDubai Taskforce leader, the key drivers that serve as a model for emerging nations comprise of smart economic conditions, driving entrepreneurship and global competitiveness.

By 2025, the global Smart Cities market will reach $3.3 trillion. It is expected that connected Cloud technology, such as mobile apps, e-government, drones, 3D printing, and robotics, will form the foundation of the region’s rapidly-growing Future Cities. This fast-growing Cloud market is estimated to grow from $118.5 million in 2014 to $668.5m in 2020, and will support the region by being a global driver in innovations connected to the Internet of Things (IoT).
