The Swedish Transport Agency (Transportstyrelsen) has awarded a contract to Morpho (Safran) for the production of secure drivers’ licenses and digital tachograph cards that record the driving and rest times of truck and bus drivers.
The new licenses and tachograph cards integrate new security features to comply with current European Union standards. They also add extra protection against document fraud.
Sweden started issuing the licenses this past January. It will introduce the new digital tachograph cards later this year.
This is not Morpho’s first project with the Swedish government. It has also installed a criminal ID system that’s now being upgraded with new biometric technology.
