A smart investigator security system project was awarded third place, followed by a project that focuses on organizing signals for emergency situations in fourth, and the team behind a smart environmental-scanning aircraft project and security resources safeguards in fifth.


Commemorative photos of the winners were taken with Prince Abdulaziz, who also toured an exhibition that accompanied the ceremony and reviewed the top technical solutions and creative ideas featured in the challenge.


About 4,000 entrants submitted more than 2,000 ideas to the second edition of the Absher Challenge, of which 184 progressed to the latter stages.
