Zghoul explained that the car is fitted with multiple cameras, including one for detecting wanted vehicles, one for facial recognition and one for speed detection. The system is also equipped with Edge processing at the rear and a speed detection camera on the bumper.
The device provides several features and functionalities, including facial recognition, speed enforcement, multi-user access, command and control center, violation detection, suspected vehicle identification and live tracking. The back-office system allows operators to remotely access a wide range of functions embedded into the in-vehicle system.
Zghoul further added that the system uses standard integration protocols and API’s, which enables interaction between different devices and legacy systems to be expandable with additional features and modules in the future.
