Making VIA Mobile360 in-vehicle system calibration easy

in-vehicle system calibration

In-vehicle system calibration can be a complex and time-consuming process. Not to mention an expensive one if you have carry out tens, hundreds, or even thousands of such installations across your fleet.

Making this process as simple and painless as possible has been one of our most important design goals for our VIA Mobile360 in-vehicle systems this year. To meet this objective, we have developed advanced software tools that facilitate calibration to enable flexible blends of DMS (Driver Monitoring System), ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System), and SVS (Surround View System) functionality to meet a diverse range of applications.

Notes from the field: emerging Edge AI market trends

2021 Edge AI market

The term Edge AI has slipped seamlessly into the high-tech marketing lexicon over the past couple of years thanks to the convergence of a number of trends. The most notable ones are the integration of cameras into just about every new electronics device and the development of increasingly sophisticated algorithms that give these devices the intelligence to recognize a person or object and issue a call to action whenever they are triggered by a particular image or type of behavior.

Combating distracted driving with the VIA Mobile360 D700 AI Dash Cam

Driver Monitoring System

Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of traffic accidents. Even with the best of intentions, not everyone is immune to the siren call of their smart phone during a long and boring drive or the temptation of a quick snack to keep their energy levels up. After all, nothing much generally happens in the space of a few seconds – unless of course a car unexpectedly cuts in front of the vehicle or a pedestrian steps out onto the road. Then all hell can break loose with potential consequences that can last a lifetime for both the driver and the victims.

Preventing accidents caused by inattentive or careless drivers is of particular concern to fleet managers with multiple vehicles carrying valuable cargoes operating to demanding schedules in their charge – not just because of the risk to life and limb but also the potential insurance and repair costs that may be incurred.

notes from the field: VIA at Embedded World 2020

embedded world 2020

No big surprise that there was a subdued atmosphere at the opening of Embedded World 2020 given the number of cancellations by key vendors. Fortunately, the mood lightened during the day as more and more visitors arrived.

While the show wasn’t as busy as in previous years, we had a steady stream of customers come to the VIA booth. For all the benefits of online communication, it still doesn’t fully replace old-fashioned face-face interactions. There’s no better way of understanding customer needs and building long-term relationships. Continue reading notes from the field: VIA at Embedded World 2020

Notes from the field: transitioning to the vehicle safety market

5:00am at the Days Inn in Fremont, California. I always get terrible jetlag flying this way over the Pacific no matter how late I stay up on the evening I arrive. At least I’ll only be here a couple of days before flying back to Taiwan for the Lunar New Year holiday.

A couple of intense days, that is, as we finalize our plans for the US market this year. Transitioning to the vehicle safety market promises to be a huge (but fun) challenge. Having the right technologies and products in place is just the first step in a long process of learning about the needs and culture of this new market.

In-vehicle system design & development presentation at IoT Devcon 2016

I thought I might as well complete a SlideShare hat trick today with this link to the presentation I gave at IoT Devcon 2016 in Santa Clara last week. While there’s no doubt about the potential of the smart transportation market, it’s important not to get too carried away by the huge numbers that are being so breathlessly bandied about. Designing and manufacturing ultra-safe and ultra-reliable smart vehicles in massive volumes is going to be far more challenging than churning out billions of PCs and smart phones!
