The CEO of Msheireb Properties Acting, Eng Ali Al Kuwari, has announced that a “autonomous vehicle” concept is being implemented by Msheireb Downtown Doha. The car is a driverless concept to be deployed around the smart city in delivery services. While addressing the virtual “Doha Smart Cities Summit” yesterday, Al Kuwari announced this.

Cars or trucks that do not need human drivers to run them safely are self-driving vehicles. To control, navigate, and drive the car, they combine sensors and software.

In remote learning, working from home, and providing services that rely on robots or autonomous equipment, Smart Cities demonstrated that they were able to meet person and company needs much better than traditional cities.

In light of this I have the honour to announce that Msheireb Properties is adopting a definition of “autonomous vehicle” that can be used in many ways especially without a driver for delivery services. In Msheireb Downtown Doha, more tests are being performed, and once they are done, the vehicle will serve residents and tenants, Eng Al Kuwari said.

Msheireb Downtown Doha is one of the smartest and most sustainable projects in the world for downtown redevelopment using the new sustainable technologies. With the tram system that eases movement and the Msheireb Museums, which host a number of community-centric activities, Msheireb Downtown Doha has become a new social and civic centre in the heart of Doha.

In overcoming the coronavirus pandemic problems, Al Kuwari also highlighted how smart cities worldwide have and continue to play a huge role. This is a great time to explore how the existing issues can be solved. Undoubtedly, smart cities are no longer a matter of preference, but rather a global movement to cope with demands embraced by enterprises and corporations.

Msheireb properties have been responsible for building an accessible and intelligent city since its creation, which is Msheireb Downtown Doha, one of the most intelligent and sustainable cities in Qatar and the world. “Now is the time to raise awareness of smart cities, encourage sustainability and encourage organisations to embrace these trends as they will benefit our nations and communities and provide solutions, particularly during a crisis,” he said.
