Sixth International Traffic Safety Forum and Exhibition

20th -22nd Jumada I 1445 (4th -6th December 2023)

Organized by the Saudi Society for Traffic Safety (SALAMAH) in collaboration with the Imam Abdul Rahman bin Faisal University, Saudi Aramco, Traffic Safety Committee in the Eastern Province


The United Nations report indicates that the number of road accident deaths exceeds 3,500 people per day around the world. It is likely that if practical and more comprehensive measures are not taken, the number of deaths and injuries will increase dramatically. Therefore, one of the initiatives of the National Transformation Program 2020 in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is based on reducing the number of deaths and injuries resulting from road accidents by 50%, and the Saudi Vision 2030 adopted additional measures to ensure traffic safety , reduce road accidents and their effects. Therefore, the concerned authorities, such as the Ministry of Interior, Transport, regional municipalities and education, have prepared strategic goals related to Saudi Vision 2030, most notably reducing transport accident rates, reducing accident mortality and the severe injuries.

Surface transportation seems to be on the cusp of a new era of smart mobility.The increasing popularity of  smart cities and recent developments in sensing, edge computing and vehicle technologies and the availability of “big data” combined with sophisticated AI techniques offer an opportunity to substantially advance and fundamentally transform the transportation and road safety profession.

AI and Big data apply modern technologies on vehicles, highways, and road networks for traffic surveillance, data collection, control, and modeling of traffic movements in real-time and in forecasts aiming to reduce congestion, fatalities, injuries due to traffic accidents, and crashes detection or prediction. In addition AI and Big data helps in the discovery of contributing factors to crashes, driving behavior analysis, crash hotspot identification, optimizing transportation infrastructure utilization,  reducing the cost of transportation, diagnosing and remedying the problems, which the traditional safety analytics cannot solve, and enhancing overall safety of the system.   

And based on the Saudi Society for Traffic Safety  participat in the activation of initiatives to improve the elements of traffic safety and the transport system, and working side by side with all traffic authorities to enhance road safety, and work to reduce the number of deaths, injuries and disabilities resulting from traffic accidents, the following title was chosen:

  Forum Title:

Artificial Intelligence and Big data for Transportation and Traffic Safety



• To identify Artificial Intelligence and Big data in traffic safety which are proven successful in international experiments.

• To develop channels for transferring the implementation of Artificial Intelligence and Big data technologies related to traffic safety to Saudi Arabia.

• To identify recent advances in Artificial Intelligence and Big data technologies and their compatibility with the objectives and elements of traffic safety.

• To develop regulations relevant to the application and deployment of Artificial Intelligence and Big data to enhance traffic safety.  

• To identify Artificial Intelligence and Big data technologies for the management of all modes of transportation, traffic accidents, and to improve and expedite the emergency response
