Digital Barriers partner to incorporate facial recognition into AV fleet
Digital Barriers’ SmartVis live facial recognition and EdgeVis live video streaming capabilities will be incorporated in the modular vehicle solutions developer’s patented autonomous mass-transportation and goods-movement fleets.
The partnership will enable the development of a new user experience in mobility where an individual’s face provides them with secure access to various connected services and in-vehicle preferences.
At the same time, the deployment of live video streaming will improve safety and security features, which in turn will accelerate innovative solutions as well as a collaborative environment with municipal stakeholders.
“We want to help NEXT provide its customers with a more secure, enhanced user experience whilst also better understanding the status of individual vehicles to enhance fleet security, and create tailored services and solutions that can be customized for each user,” explained Zak Doffman, CEO of Digital Barriers. “Our live facial recognition and live video streaming technologies already lead the market for performance and cost-effectiveness, and as this partnership with NEXT clearly illustrates, have the potential for widespread adoption as facial recognition and wireless video streaming become mainstream embedded solutions.”
Last month, COBAN Technologies partnered with Digital Barriers to provide live facial recognition and live video streaming technology for the FOCUS H1 police dash cam system.
