NORTH VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 20, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Vizzion, the leading provider of roadside traffic camera imagery, has launched Drives: the latest in street-level imagery. Drives is a source of high-density road information gathered from a network of on-vehicle cameras. The imagery, which is available from a rapidly expanding network of currently over 80,000 dash cameras mounted in commercial vehicles operating throughout North America, can replace other costly data sources.
Images are retrieved from the vehicles over a cellular connection and delivered to clients via Vizzion's API. This opens new real-time use cases like live traffic and weather reporting, compliance checks, and road event management. Three hundred million images are captured daily, with images at key locations archived for one year, allowing users to view changes to the roadway over time and verify other data sources.
"Drives can be used for a variety of use cases, ranging from change detection for HD mapping and autonomous driving systems to infrastructure monitoring, sign cataloging, and work zone detection," said Chris Cooper, President, Vizzion. "The high-definition images are a rich source of information that provide a look into pavement and lane marking conditions, roadwork, streetside-parking, incident recovery, and even driver behavior. Vizzion looks forward to supporting our partners operating in these spaces."
Without restriction, the imagery can serve as an input for training and running AI, be integrated into customer applications, and be displayed to the general public. The service can provide ground truth and identify inaccuracies in other datasets. It can also replace time-consuming and costly data-gathering efforts, satellite imagery that's slow to refresh or other image sources with restrictive permissions.
Vizzion's network consists entirely of commercial fleets. Each vehicle captures an image every second as it drives. Collectively, the vehicles travel five million miles per day. The vehicle network is an aggregate of long-haul trucking fleets, local parcel delivery vans, and municipal vehicles, which cover a variety of interstates, highways, other arterials, city, commercial, and residential streets.
