Williams F1 & Mowasalat sign MOU on advanced simulator-based training technology; safety, comfort and fuel efficiency

Williams F1 and Mowasalat have signed a memorandum of understanding that will see Williams F1’s advanced simulator technology, currently under development at the Williams Technology Centre, Qatar (WTCQ), applied in Mowasalat’s driver training operations to help improve road safety, passenger comfort and fuel efficiency.

Known as the “The Transport Company,” Qatar-based Mowasalat started its activities in the region in October 2004 by providing land transport services and solutions. Mowasalat’s mission is to be the regional leader in the provision of integrated ground transport services across Qatar.

Under the terms of the MoU, the WTCQ will work with Mowasalat’s Karwa Transportation Training and Development Centre (KTTDC) to adapt, further develop, empirically validate and ultimately integrate Williams F1’s advanced simulator training systems into its operations.

Williams F1’s simulator technology, developed over the last decade for the advanced training of the world’s leading racing drivers, allows high-fidelity advanced training to be conducted in a controlled environment across varied contexts with the benefit of repeatability to enable assessment and skills improvement. The enhanced training and assessment capabilities provided by Williams F1’s state-of-the-art driving simulators will help Mowasalat improve the skill level of its drivers to deliver better service to customers, improve the company’s environmental efficiency, reduce costs, and improve road safety.
