Caravision Partners with Parent Company Hi Sharp to Shine at Secutech 2022
Caravision subsidiary is continuing to build on its parent company Hi Sharp’s experience from more than 30 years in the surveillance industry and has specialized in automotive surveillance equipment since it was founded in 2014. It has since developed driver vision assistance solutions for the commercial market. Between April 27 and April 29, the two companies will take part in the Secutech 2022 trade show at Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 2 (Booth 527) to showcase their efforts in AI for the three key markets of smart vehicles, smart construction sites, and smart surveillance. Live streaming will also be held each day using the “Security A-Kui” YouTube channel.
Growing demand from the global automotive surveillance market has spurred the continued development of new functions by Caravision to improve fleet driving safety in the transportation industry. Products to be displayed include a digital dash camera that complies with Article 16, Item 1 of the Vehicle Safety Testing Directions. The product is based on an all-new Taiwan-made IC platform available in 4-channel or 8-channel configurations that offer ease of use and expansion. The integrated digital tachograph replaces conventional paper tacograph with digital signals to record large amounts of driving data including vehicle startup, shutdown and stopping, driving time, speed, engine RPM, GPS location, mileage and idling. The information can be used for driver authentication, time management, habit mentoring and incident analysis. Computerized fleet management can be implemented through more effective logging/querying of vehicle driving information and route management.
Caravision stated that the device can be integrated with Advanced Driver-Assistance System (ADAS) and use the core AI computing platform for image calibration and augmentation of auxiliary safety cameras. These include front cameras used to distance-keeping and pedestrian detection, rear cameras for reversing and proximity alerts, and panoramic cameras for parking assistance. AI models and algorithms can be switched on the fly to meet the operating requirements of different vehicles and monitor the vehicle’s surroundings. Also on display are solutions based on sensor fusion. Individual cameras are integrated with millimetric radar to enable obstacle classification by vehicles. Distance to obstacles can also be precisely determined under any weather or lighting conditions so that decisions on improved safety can be made in a timely manner. This will not only provide drivers with a safer and more convenient driving experience, but also improve the efficiency and sustainability of the transportation and logistics industries.
According to Caravision, the parent company Hi Sharp has been focusing on the development of surveillance hardware in recent years. Its portfolio has also expanded from indoors to outdoors so it now boasts a full range of surveillance products for satisfying the requirements of smart applications in each industry. These included participation in major infrastructure projects such as power plants, large teaching hospitals, expressways and mass transit over the years. AI image recognition technology has become more widely used in recent years and one of its key fields of application is access control and surveillance. To reduce the risks of accidents for workers, AI and IoT technology were used to introduce smart technology into construction site management. Applications include improved worker safety and assisting security with efficient management of contractor personnel and vehicular traffic. Deep learning algorithms for a new type of geo-fencing, automated alerts, real-time environmental safety monitoring, worker behavior detection, smoke and fire detection, and PPE detection were implemented to enhance safety supervision at construction sites. By ensuring the safety and quality of public construction projects, the risk of occupational injury can be reduced while also improving the overall safety culture during construction.
In the IoT age, web cams are no longer just the eyes of the surveillance system but also capable of performing computing tasks. The centralized image monitoring integration platform on display uses image surveillance as the basis for building a data analytics service. Customer requirements can be combined with multiple AI deep recognition analysis to develop a custom solution that can be interpreted through an intuitive visualized format. A next-generation combat information management platform was set up that can respond to all kinds of customer requirements during product development, as well as provide comprehensive one-stop service and solutions. More resources will be integrated towards project development and function integration in the future. Smart image analysis technology will be enhanced to provide more video value-added services that satisfy the security & surveillance requirements of the vertical market.
