Bayanat AI

Bayanat AI, a leader in AI-powered geospatial and smart mobility solutions, and Oxa, a specialist in autonomous vehicle (AV) technology, have entered a strategic partnership to advance AV solutions in the UAE and beyond. This collaboration, supported by the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO) under its Smart and Autonomous Vehicle Industry (SAVI) cluster, represents a significant step forward in the region’s autonomous mobility landscape.

The partnership was launched during a visit by high-level delegates from Bayanat and ADIO to Oxa’s headquarters in Oxford, UK. The collaboration aims to combine Bayanat’s expertise in AI-driven geospatial analytics and AV operations with Oxa’s innovative AV technologies to create cutting-edge solutions for smart cities and autonomous transport systems.

Establishing a Hub for Autonomous Technology
Inaugurated in 2023, Abu Dhabi’s SAVI cluster serves as a nucleus for smart and AV technology within the MENA region. The cluster supports the development and commercialization of AV technologies across air, land, and sea applications, providing a supportive regulatory framework and state-of-the-art facilities. ADIO’s involvement has been crucial in fostering a conducive environment for technological advancements.

Nayef Shahin, Director of Innovation and Knowledge at ADIO, highlighted the strategic importance of this partnership, stating, “Our goal with the SAVI cluster was to create a platform in Abu Dhabi that connects top global and local mobility innovators to forge new pathways. The Oxa-Bayanat collaboration is a testament to this vision, where both entities will leverage their capabilities in AV technology to deliver impactful solutions across urban environments.”
Leveraging Synergies for Enhanced Urban Mobility
The collaboration between Bayanat and Oxa is set to position the UAE as a leader in autonomous technology development, with far-reaching implications across multiple sectors. Hasan Al Hosani, Managing Director of Bayanat, expressed confidence in the partnership’s potential, saying, “By merging our strengths in geospatial analytics and AV operations with Oxa’s advanced AV technology, we are well-equipped to develop groundbreaking solutions that will improve mobility, safety, and efficiency in urban areas.”

A key initiative under this partnership is the proposed establishment of an Autonomous Mobility Centre of Excellence. This center aims to integrate into Abu Dhabi’s ecosystem, promoting the development and adoption of AV technologies. Additionally, the collaboration seeks to enhance local talent development, providing opportunities for engineers, data scientists, legal experts, and support staff, supplemented by Oxa’s academic partnerships with institutions like the Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI). Accelerating Autonomous Technology Adoption Gavin Jackson, CEO of Oxa, emphasized the potential of this partnership to drive the adoption of autonomous technologies. “As a B2B company, we seek partners who share our vision and have the capability to help us deploy our world-class autonomy solutions across various industries. Bayanat and ADIO are ideal partners.

Endorsed by ADIO, the Bayanat-Oxa partnership is not just a stride towards improved urban mobility but also a significant leap towards establishing Abu Dhabi as a leader in the smart and autonomous vehicle sector. The partnership is also exploring the development of advanced services in the AV sector, guided by an advisory board consisting of UAE industry representatives and senior leaders from Oxa.
This collaboration underscores the commitment of Bayanat and Oxa to pushing the boundaries of autonomous technology and smart mobility solutions, ensuring that the UAE remains at the forefront of innovation in this dynamic field. With the support of ADIO’s SAVI cluster, this partnership is poised to deliver transformative solutions that will redefine urban mobility and create a smarter, safer, and more efficient transportation ecosystem.
