About USD $3 million has been allocated to mega companies, USD $1.5m for start-ups, and USD $600,000 for universities and academic institutions (USD $300,000 each for local universities, and international universities). The Dubai World Challenge for Self-Driving Transport has become a key pillar of RTA’s strategy and hence launching a host of such innovative initiatives can make driverless mobility a reality on the ground,” concluded Shakeri.
