As we move in to the second half of 2023, it’s a good time to highlight the advances we have made with VIA Intelligent Automotive Solutions over the past six months and share some of our future strategies.
Our vision for VIA Intelligent Automotive Solutions is to enhance the safety and efficiency of commercial and industrial vehicles of all shapes and sizes in the toughest and most demanding on-road and off-road environments. For us, this means providing drivers with the intelligent tools they need to assist them to operate their vehicle more safely and efficiently. These range from pinpoint people and object detection algorithms that provide accurate and timely alerts whenever a VIA Mobile360 system notices someone or something coming too close for comfort to a vehicle to fatigue and distraction warnings that remind drivers of the need to take a break or stop sneaking glances at their phone.
To meet diverse customer needs across the commercial, industrial, and materials handling markets, we have developed a comprehensive family of systems that have been designed for deployment in different vehicle types and use cases, including:
VIA Mobile360 AI Dash Cam for small and medium-size passenger and commercial vehicles
VIA Mobile360 M800 Video Telematics System for large commercial and public transportation vehicles
VIA Mobile360 Forklift Safety System for combustion-powered and EV forklifts
VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System for wheel loaders, haulers, excavators, and other massive machines used in the most demanding mining and construction environments
By designing VIA Intelligent Automotive Solutions from the ground up, including the system, accessories, software, AI algorithms, and cloud services, we are not only able to guarantee the highest levels of performance, quality, and reliability. We can also rapidly optimize them for myriad commercial and industrial vehicles and use cases.
The VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System provides an excellent example of the benefits of this approach. As we demonstrated at Conexpo-Con/Agg in March, we have successfully installed the system in optimized configurations on many of the largest mining and excavation vehicles ranging from CAT 980M and John Deere 724 wheel loaders to CAT 775F/G and Komatsu WA500-7 haulers.
In the same way, we have also enabled customers to deploy the VIA Mobile360 Forklift Safety System on vehicles such as skid steers as well as standard combustion-powered and EV forklifts.
This holistic approach also gives us the ability to swiftly add new innovations to meet emerging customer needs. With the VIA Mobile360 Forklift Safety System, for example, we have introduced a host of new accessories during the first half of the year, including a seatbelt sensor to remind operators to buckle up before they start driving their vehicle, a RAM® Mounts Kit to minimize shock and vibration, and a Digital I/O cable for connecting to alarms and sirens.
As we deepen our engagement with our growing global customer base, we will continue to harness the scalability of VIA Intelligent Automotive Solutions platforms to meet increasingly sophisticated deployment needs. Watch this space for future news!
