The Saudi Data and AI Authority (SDAIA) is working to develop the Smart Makkah Operations Center (Smart Moc) according to the latest technologies and forward-looking capabilities based on AI techniques.

This move intends to contribute to ensuring the safety and comfort of pilgrims and facilitating their movement and the services provided to them.

According to the statement, a team of national cadres who are experts in a variety of fields, including programming, data, and AI, are employed at Smart Moc on a 24×7 basis to monitor the operational processes of the platforms and provide precise analyses of their progress.

This is in accordance with SDAIA’s commitment to utilizing the most advanced data technologies and AI to assist pilgrims and visitors to the Grand Mosque.

As per the statement, “Among the center’s major achievements is the ‘Basier’ platform, which is the first real-time computer vision system in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and one of the largest crowd management systems in the Middle East.”

It is a Saudi smart platform that relies on multiple technological systems operating with national algorithms to monitor and manage crowds in the Grand Mosque, regulate their movements, and facilitate the flow of vehicles.

Recently, SDAIA announced that it provides a wide range of smart solutions to support developmental sectors in the Kingdom by leveraging data and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

The solutions include supporting national efforts aimed at preserving the environment and natural resources and achieving a sustainable future, in line with achieving the Saudi Vision 2030 targets.
