THE Malaysia Automotive, Robotics and IoT Institute (MARii) will be collaborating with Melati Evergreen Sdn Bhd to advance their Big Data Analytics (BDA) technologies and solutions in the mobility and transportation sectors.
MARii and Melati will be exploring the applications of BDA, artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) on all mobility platforms to enhance data-driven solutions.
The focus will be on the deployment of BDA solutions to enable real-time data analytics of the factors affecting the various modes of transportation, such as traffic density, weather conditions and road defects. This would allow the integration of daily operations into a connected, cloud-based platform that allows for faster and more accurate decision-making processes.
“BDA, AI and IoT are core requirements in the nation’s agenda towards a data-driven, digital economy. Its applications expand beyond the automotive sector, and form the backbone in the realisation of connected mobility and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), in all modes of transportation, be it air, land or sea,” said MARii CEO Madani Sahari.
Madani added that the initiative will optimise smart technologies for various operations in the mobility sector.
“These technologies can be further leveraged to create a secure and comfortable travelling ecosystem for passengers, especially during the post-Covid-19 era when international travel begins to operate as usual,” he said. – July 7, 2020
