Doha: The Qatar University Wireless Innovations Centre (QUWIC) at the Qatar Science and Technology Park has unveiled two new systems that they say will deal with some of the significant logistics and systems management issues currently facing Qatari institutions.
Using its new Labeeb data processing system, QUWIC has launched Masarak, a comprehensive solution to provide real-time and historic traffic information in Qatar, and a user interface that will support services and applications using this information to address the needs of three market segments: government entities, enterprises, and consumers.
Users can access these systems through mobile device applications, web applications, voice, SMS and broadcast, and will allow users to monitor traffic congestion on an interactive map, as well as get directions between locations that factor in traffic flow, ease of use and distance.
The system can monitor data from vehicles such as Mowasalat taxis and buses, and will also integrate data from cameras. QUWIC officials say that the system promises to assist with traffic congestion and monitoring, vehicle tracking, trip planning, dispatching and intelligent fleet management.
