UAE awards and conferences

Both the Public Cruiser and Loyal Monster self-driving vehicles were presented at the Natrans EXPO 2016, Future Mobility 2016 and Gulf Traffic 2016 conferences, the biggest traffic and automotive conferences in the United Arabian Emirates (UAE) – here is a good article from Gulf Traffic, and here is the official press release in the MENA Herald from Future Mobility.
