SMARTEYE IS AN INTEGRATED AND DISTRIBUTED SYSTEM OF VISION SENSORS
The hidden technology behind SmartEye is made of a powerful electronic brain with an exclusive Artificial Intelligence (AI) engine. Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Situation Awareness give to the System the capability of understanding what is really happening on the road, without human intervention. That is the reason why we provide multifunctional services by processing only the video information in real time, such as: traffic data & flow, weather conditions, identification & classification of objects, and detection of dangerous events.
