IntelliVision upgrades smart auto software with cloud or onboard facial recognition
IntelliVision has announced a new version of its Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) software, featuring the latest version of its facial recognition technology among a range of machine vision capabilities.
The new ADAS version is intended to run on multi-core platforms like Ambarella H22, and can process 30 fps of HD resolution video, according to the announcement. Optimized in-camera processing enables ADAS to detect up to 10 faces in less than a second with 25 percent CPU usage on an Ambarella S5L-based camera. The system can recognize 20 faces in a single frame, and if the cloud-based Face Recognition as a Service (FRaaS) is used instead of in-camera processing, additional analytics can be applied, along with recognition in under a second.
IntelliVision launched its Face Recognizer and FRaaS with the above capabilities earlier this year, shortly after being acquired by Nortek Security & Control (NSC).
“IntelliVision Advanced Driver Assistance System software is installed in over two million dashcams, helping to save lives all over the world,” said Vaidhi Nathan, SVP Cameras and Analytics for NSC, IntelliVision’s parent company. “Dashcam makers, insurance companies and auto manufacturers are increasingly looking to IntelliVision video analytics technology to improve safety and cut costs in the aftermarket as well as in the move towards fully-autonomous vehicles.”
ADAS also features higher detection accuracy for its Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems with improved AI algorithms, and new Pedestrian Collision Warning (PCW) and Stop-n-Go Warning systems. Some algorithms used by ADAS can be configured to meet different customer needs.
Nortek integrated IntelliVision’s face recognition capabilities into its Elan line of smart home products in September.
