MARii inks MoU with Melati Evergreen to further explore applications of AI and IoT in mobility platforms

The Malaysia Automotive, Robotics and IoT Institute (MARii) and Melati Evergreen Sdn. Bhd. (Melati) has inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to further enhance the technologies and solutions developed by both parties in the mobility and transportation sectors.

The collaboration aims to explore the applications of Big Data Analytics (BDA), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Internet of Things (IoT) in all mobility platforms (land, sea, and air) in order to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of data-driven solutions.

“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 Madani Sahari, chief executive officer of MARii.

The partnership focuses on the deployment of BDA solutions to enable real-time data analytics of various factors affecting the respective modes of transportation such as traffic density, weather condition, and road defects to develop Smart Cities and ITS.

“Through this initiative, various operations in the mobility sector can be optimised through smart technologies to provide quick and effective solutions that are driven by meaningful data. 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 travels begin to operate as usual.”, Madani explained.

Other than enhancing security levels, the data obtained can also be used to improve the services offered by the mobility industry to stimulate participation from the public through providing personalised, on-demand services, especially in the duty-free retail sector which is a key platform for transactions in airports.

This MoU will also facilitate the tourism sector in overcoming technology investment anxiety while spurring the adoption of digital solutions to boost engagement with the public in efforts to grow the sector post Covid-19.
