NEXT Future Transportation forms innovation partnership with Digital Barriers
San Jose, Calif. (USA) – November 14, 2017– NEXT Future Transportation, the world’s only modular vehicle solutions provider and Digital Barriers, a world pioneer and leader in wireless video streaming and deep learning-based facial recognition, today announced a joint integration programme around embedded computer vision software.
SmartVis live facial recognition and EdgeVis live video streaming from Digital Barriers will be included with NEXT’s patented autonomous mass-transportation and goods-movement fleets.
The partnership will enable the development of a new user experience in mobility where your face becomes your secure access to a number of connected services and in-vehicle preferences.
At the same time, the adoption of live video streaming will enhance safety and security features, which will accelerate innovative solutions, and a collaborative environment with municipal stakeholders.
Emmanuele Spera, CEO, NEXT Future Transportation, Inc, said: “We live in a world where technological innovation has dramatically changed the way in which we communicate and interact in everything that we do.
"More importantly, we have come to a point where we now have both a technology push and a consumer pull for advanced transportation technology products and applications.
"We believe that a strategic partnership with a leading player like Digital Barriers is the ideal platform for developing a new way forward in our industry and answering the evolving needs of consumers on a global scale.
“Through our new technology partnership with Digital Barriers, we will gain better insights to provide safer, cleaner and more courteous public transportation, further motivating commuters to use our services, including end-to-end multi-modal travel.”
Zak Doffman, CEO, Digital Barriers, said: “We want to help NEXT provide its customers with a more secure, enhanced user experience whilst also better understanding the status of individual vehicles to enhance fleet security, and create tailored services and solutions that can be customized for each user.
“Our live facial recognition and live video streaming technologies already lead the market for performance and cost-effectiveness, and as this partnership with NEXT clearly illustrates, have the potential for widespread adoption as facial recognition and wireless video streaming become mainstream embedded solutions."
