International Road Federation (IRF) Member XenomatiX hosted today a delegation comprising twenty delegates from the Saudi Ministry of Transport & Logistic Services, the governmental agency tasked with developing Saudi Arabia’s transportation system and making the Kingdom a global logistics center.
The tour began at the company’s headquarters in Leuven, Belgium where CEO Filip Geuens and the Application Engineering Team presented XenomatiX’ road lidar technology and its millimetre-accurate pavement measurements. The presentations included a live test drive in a demonstration vehicle followed by an overview of the company’s flagship GIS system RoadViewer, a user-friendly “digital twin” application.
The visit also includes exchanges with representatives of the Belgian Road Research Center (BRRC), an institute that has built a solid reputation in road design, construction, maintenance, safety and mobility over its fifty-year existence. BRRC and XenomatiX established a partnership in 2018 focused on developing innovative and affordable solutions for performant and cost-effective road management.
As a strong believer in continuing education, the IRF provides members as well as road professionals worldwide with educational and professional development opportunities and resources. IRF’s Global Training Curriculum provides technical expertise in classroom and practical settings where attendees can learn from and have direct access to seasoned professionals. Each course not only provides the most relevant, up-to-date information and best practices and solutions, but is also designed to assist attendees in learning to correctly apply the knowledge gained.
