Digital Barriers has secured a recurring revenue software contract for its facial recognition technology with Careem, a leading ride hailing provider in the Middle East and North Africa, with operations across more than fifty cities, across Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, Pakistan, Jordan, Morocco, Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon and Kuwait.
Following a competitive benchmarking process, Careem selected the Group’s facial recognition software and will now integrate it into their driver smartphone application to provide enhanced passenger safety and security, ensuring that the actual driver of the vehicle can be matched in the background in real-time to the authorised and accredited driver. Careem will also use the Group’s facial recognition platform to secure the driver enrolment process. In combination, these applications will ensure that Careem can provide improved levels of passenger security and safety across the ride hailing sector.
