New, Cutting-Edge Biometric and Artificial Intelligence-Based Offering Available for Law Enforcement and Public Safety Officers
NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- LVCC, CENTRAL HALL, BOOTH 13518 – Today at CES® 2019, EyeLock LLC in collaboration with 360fly Inc., announced the integration of EyeLock's iris authentication technology into a Smart Rear View Mirror with camera and AI, developed by 360fly for the law enforcement and public safety sectors.
The connected car represents one of the fastest growing IoT markets. By 2020, an estimated 250 million connected vehicles will be on the roads worldwide, with each one featuring 200 or more sensors continuously collecting and utilizing data about road conditions, the car, and driver preferences, according to IndustryWeek. As the number of connected cars rises, so do security concerns and hacking fears.
As these connected vehicles increasingly become a part of the toolset that law enforcement and civilian safety personnel use to protect our communities, the tools protecting them must evolve as well. More than ever before, officer and civilian safety is top of mind and today's social and political climate demand accurate reporting of all interactions.
The introduction of the new Smart Rear View Mirror that incorporates both EyeLock and 360fly camera and AI technology, enables the delivery of unprecedented situational awareness directly to a law enforcement officer who, when duty calls, must remain focused on the task at hand, while still being protected from the unexpected.
EyeLock's proprietary iris authentication technology is integrated into this unique, multi-faceted mirror, providing unparalleled security and allowing only authorized personnel the ability to operate the vehicle, with access to the vehicle's connected devices and computers. The technology will also act as an officer interaction log to record who is behind the wheel, fleet management, and time and attendance functions for end-of-shift procedures. Additional features can be enabled for law enforcement, civilian safety, fleet services, and ride-sharing services, along with consumer functions that may include personalization and keyless entry.
"EyeLock has spent considerable time investing with automotive leaders to create the most effective means to identify drivers and occupants in traditional and autonomous vehicular scenarios," said Jeff Carter, CEO of EyeLock. "The collaboration with 360fly brings to life our shared vision to transform driver authentication, particularly in the mission-critical world of law enforcement."
Accompanying the EyeLock technology in this biometric Smart Rear View Mirror is a dual camera system that captures detail-rich, interactive 360-degree 4K video content of the entire surroundings, both in and out of the vehicle.
The 360-degree view includes a dedicated forward facing POV (point of view) camera that runs specific computer vision-based video processing tasks, including license plate recognition in high resolution, as well as a centered lens that captures 360x240-degree content.
All of these rich data feeds come together in a suite of Smart Artificial Intelligent (AI) features such as object recognition, threat detection, accident avoidance, and telemetric data.
"The Smart Rear View Mirror platform from 360fly represents the most complete integration of optics and edge AI for public safety. The Smart Rear View Mirror includes forward-looking LPR and 360 situational awareness optics that operate in the visible and IR spectrum. The edge AI capability provides industry-leading, actionable AI analytics that up until now were only available on server-based systems," said Peter Aloumanis, CEO of 360fly.
