Video Telematics Leader, Idrive, Announces the Release of Facial Recognition for its X2 Advanced Dual Camera System Based on Artificial Intelligence

The use of external input devices to determine who started and is driving the vehicle has been rendered obsolete by Idrive's newest innovation.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 15, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- idrive - A global leader in Intelligent Camera Systems and Computer Vision for the transportation industry — has released another industry first in its new embedded Facial Recognition for Driver Identification. The new service will be available for download to existing X2 customers and new purchases. The service will be displayed on the recently renovated Global Center 3, Idrive's Cloud.

Facial Recognition is the apex of human identification and Idrive's engineers have managed to design an extremely accurate system and embed the technology on the idrive fleet camera without the need for external devices.

While Facial Recognition is important for security; Safety and Driver Management are the key purpose of the feature. Driver Identification has always been problematic. Driver assignment is normally done by assigning: keys, RFID badges, cards, or codes entered by each driver. Besides the fact that these are often lost or stolen, it does not fix the problem of who is really operating the vehicle as they can be passed between drivers. Idrive's solution eliminates this problem and creates more efficient fleet monitoring.

"Facial Recognition eliminates what amounts to a real headache for our customers," stated Curt Andrews, Vice President of Sales at idrive, "The fact that the camera can look at the driver and tell us who it is seems like science fiction but it works incredibly well and all our client has to do is subscribe to the service and it is turned on the next day."

With an idrive X2 camera installed, the camera "looks" at who is driving and takes appropriate action. Actions include: identifying the driver and assigning them to all events and data during their shift. Our customers can be alerted if an un-authorized driver is present or if a driver change has taken place. Hours of services can be monitored for safety and lists of available drivers can be obtained.

Idrive has a long history of innovating ahead of the competition by several years and has been involved in Artificial Intelligence related machine learning and computer vision for nearly 7 years now and needed the data to achieve the futuristic service it is now releasing. "The advent of autonomous vehicles combined with dash camera popularity has brought our company into the mainstream but for us its business as usual," said Idrive's CEO, Sean O'Neil.

Idrive will be announcing new fleet and artificial intelligence technology in the coming weeks.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive.

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
