Moviken completes delivery of Passenger Information System on Dubai ferries

Moviken recently announced that it has finished the delivery of its first contract with the Marine Department of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of Dubai, including the supply, installation and commissioning of a geo-located Passenger Information System on-board the Dubai ferries.

The Naviboat system delivers information to passengers on the Dubai ferries via large screens installed in passenger cabins. The system shows the ferry’s location through multi-scale, customized cartography. At pre-programmed locations the system shows videos related to the journey or points of interest along the route.

Naviboat is part Moviken’s NaviTransport range of public transport passenger information and navigation products that have been deployed on about a dozen transport networks around the world. Moviken has advanced in its international development with the implementation of its representative in Dubai and the signature of its first contract with the RTA.

“This is a great opportunity for the expansion of the company in the GCC and our passenger information system are very innovative and on the way to equip the major public transport system in the UAE,” Moviken CEO Jean-Claude Degand said.

Moviken also recently signed a representation and collaboration agreement covering the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia with the Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo Group.
