Monitoring driver behavior for safer roads
Tahakom, the Saudi Technology and Security Comprehensive Control Company, and IDEMIA Group, the leader in security technologies, have signed a new extensive Memorandum of Understanding that prioritizes sustainability and road safety in Saudi Arabia. IDEMIA and Tahakom have been collaborating since 2017.
In line with this agreement, they will conceive and implement initiatives with the aim of maximizing the beneficial impact of their activities on the local community and environment. This collaboration will span across various areas such as work development, industry localization, SME support, innovation and digitalization and sustainability.
One of the objectives of this agreement is to develop Tahakom’s vision of public safety and smart mobility through AI-based technology. Another objective is to promote the Saudi Vision 2030, which has three main pillars: to make the country the heart of the Arab and Islamic worlds, to become a global investment powerhouse through the development of local activities, and to transform the country’s location into a hub connecting Afro-Eurasia.
IDEMIA and Tahakom are providing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with a cutting-edge road safety solution that functions perfectly in extreme weather conditions and can manage complex road violations.
Tahakom executives recently visited IDEMIA headquarters in Paris, France where Eng. Hani Alsaigh, Vice President of Supply Chain from Tahakom and Pierre Barrial, President & CEO, IDEMIA signed this agreement.
We are pleased to grow our strategic partnership with IDEMIA and enhance public safety and smart mobility in the Kingdom through AI-enabled solutions, in line with the Saudi Vision 2030. IDEMIA continues to demonstrate its commitment with the provision of cutting-edge products and services encompassing the latest technologies. Our mutual mission to enhance road safety in the Kingdom is further strengthened through the expansion of the industry-leading solution and maintenance agreement.
This partnership further strengthens Tahakom and IDEMIA’s commitment to ensure safer roads in the Kingdom. We thank Tahakom for its trust in IDEMIA and look forward to building upon our long-term technology partnership.
