idrive recently introduced the AI Cam, an all-new, intelligent dual-facing camera.
The idrive AI Cam is a next-generation dash camera with technology that identifies and interprets human driving behavior, generating critical data to improve driver performance and save lives, according to the company. idrive is a Santa Barbara, California-based provider of artificially intelligent (AI) software and hardware for highly accurate driver monitoring.
The AI Cam can replace up to 10 transportation peripherals with one single device, according to idrive.
The camera’s hardware features high-definition video, an OLED display for in-cab alerts and an eight-core processor embedded with AI for advanced computing. The camera is equipped to provide a wide array of connections, including Wi-Fi, cellular or Bluetooth LE.
“These advanced hardware features were built with the specific goal of creating a robust camera that could handle the advanced computing that computer vision and artificial intelligence require,” the company said in a news release.
The idrive AI Cam’s software and AI-based features (live video telematics, accident alerts, facial recognition, seatbelt detection and distracted- and drowsy-driving detection, accident prediction and safe distance warning), all exceed 90% accuracy on all AI event detection, according to the company, which promises more AI features in 2020.
The events recorded by the AI Cam are triggered by AI, wired, manual and internal triggers, which are captured and then uploaded via cellular connection to idrive’s intelligent cloud-based management platform, iris.
“With over 10 years in the industry we have gained the critical data and expertise to develop the cutting-edge technology needed for the AI Cam, stated Florin Pasol, CTO of idrive. “We have been developing this camera for a little over two years now and we are very eager to share it with the market.”
The idrive AI Cam will begin shipping in November and will be first-come/first-serve, with priority given to existing clients.
