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.

The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform....

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This...

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...

Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will ...
Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations.
