NEXT Future Transportation

Driverless vehicles to feature facial recognition and video streaming from Digital Barriers

NEXT Future Transportation, a developer of self-driving technology, will integrate cognitive video software from Digital Barriers to provide better vehicle safety and security.

Digital Barriers, which has used wireless video streaming and deep learning-based facial recognition, will embed its SmartVis live facial recognition and EdgeVis live video streaming in NEXT’s patented autonomous mass transportation vehicle fleets.

NEXT Future Transportation has developed a patented advanced smart transportation and artificial intelligence system based on swarms of modular self-driving vehicles. Each module can join and detach with other modules on roads and highways.

The partnership will enable the development of a new user experience in mobility where the human face becomes a secure access to connected services and in-vehicle preferences.

In addition live video streaming will enhance safety and security features.

“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,” says Emmanuele Spera, CEO of NEXT Future Transportation.

He adds: “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 its new technology partnership with Digital Barriers, NEXT Future Transportation hopes to gain better insights to provide safer, cleaner and more courteous public transportation.
