Abstract

The goal of this project was to assess the feasibility of incorporating smart technologies into the current transportation systems within Madinat Al Irfane in Rabat, Morocco. Our team worked in collaboration with Dean Essaidi, of l'Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Informatique et d'Analyse des Systèmes (ENSIAS) to accomplish this goal. Through research, site assessments, surveys, and interviews, our team gauged the public’s discontent with the current bus service. After completing our assessment of the existing transportation systems in Madinat Al Irfane, we concluded it is not feasible to implement smart mobility initiatives. In hopes to alleviate prevalent issues the team found in the transit systems, we developed a preliminary design review for a sensor based tracking system for the buses.
