Danish tech firm NERVE caused a stir at this year’s 2nd International Conference on Future Mobility in the UAE. NERVE showcased some of the company’s latest in electric and driverless vehicle technology, set to completely disrupt urban transportation models the world over, such as its Smart Cruiser, a next-generation and multifunctional public transport solution; and the world’s fastest autonomous motorcycle.

Smart, green and multifunctional, Smart Cruiser is an intelligent electric vehicle with flawless suspension and robot technology, giving it unmatched high-speed, all-terrain capability. Already being piloted for roll out in Copenhagen, the bus can ferry people from A to B, distribute goods, clean the streets and even double as civil defense tool. In some versions, it also boasts a pair of touch sensitive robotic arms, directed by a control center, and capable of helping children, the elderly and the visually impaired to get on and off with safely and with ease.

Also on display at Future Mobility this year was NERVE’s renowned Autonomous Street Racer motorcycle, currently the world-record holder for the quickest electric motorcycle in the world. The motorcycle is expected to play an important role in the future of traffic management, police mobility and even emergency response infrastructure.

The 2nd International Conference on Future Mobility was inaugurated today by H.E. Dr. Rashid Bin Ahmed Bin Fahad, UAE Minister of State. During the conference, NERVE Founder and CTO Soeren O. Ekelund delivered an informative speech focusing on the delicate balance between people, society and technology, and how each must be considered to achieve a more sustainable future.

Commenting on the occasion, NERVE’s Founder and CTO Søren O. Ekelund said: “It’s great to be taking part in one of the region’s most important transport events. This is a unique opportunity for us to showcase some of the best of our creations to Dubai and the wider region, and to initiate important conversations with public and private sector partners about the future of transport and mobility in the UAE. Dubai is an ideal platform for testing new ideas and innovative technologies, and our research indicates that products like the Smart Cruiser and Autonomous Street Racer motorcycle could be optimally deployed here. If Dubai is to become a hub for sustainability, it needs technology to support that ambition.”
