Hypermotion Dubai - Hypermotion Lab

Hypermotion Lab

New ideas, cutting edge technology and thinking

The boundaries between logistics, mobility, infrastructure and transport are falling. New, networked, integrated and inter-modal systems are being created.

The ‘Lab’ is a unique platform for disruptors and disruption. The stage for founders and true innovators, where insights into the future move firmly into the spotlight, where what is old is re-thought and what is new is put to the test.

A specifically curated programme of future-orientated pioneering projects and solutions, all connected by infrastructure and technology.

Key themes to be covered, include:

  • Transformative impact of big-data in the mobility and logistics sectors
  • Is urban air mobility really deliverable?
  • Alternative fuels debate: hydrogen fuel cells vs. electric batteries
  • GCC’s railway revealed: timelines, milestones, challenges & opportunities
