Installation Overview

Deployment Options

The Smarter AI™ Dashcam supports LTE/4G and Wi-Fi connections:
Wi-Fi

The vehicle has a TCU with an LTE/4G connection.
The Smarter AI™ Dashcam connects to the TCU via Wi-Fi.
The TCU shares its internet connection with the Smarter AI™ Dashcam.

LTE/4G

The Smarter AI™ Dashcam connects to the Internet through its LTE/4G connection. It can share its internet access through Wi-Fi.

The Smarter AI™ Dashcam runs AnyConnect Smarter Camera Platform. What is this platform about?

AnyConnect’s Smarter Camera Platform is the equivalent of Android for cameras. With its powerful set of software libraries for cameras and an overarching cloud platform that makes a camera (such as Smarter AI™ Dashcam) smarter.

With AnyConnect’s patented technologies, the Smarter AI™ Dashcam has a guaranteed and low latency video & audio connections through NATs, especially wireless and cellular networks & cloud video recording.

With AnyConnect Smarter Camera Platform, the Smarter AI™ Dashcam runs AI-driven computer vision at the edge, in a secure and data-protection-compliant way. A console provides a full overview of all connections and offers granular control over the entire system.

Smarter AI™ Dashcam in-depth

All-in-one, AI Video Telematics system

AnyConnect Smarter AI™ Dashcam provides a complete, in-vehicle solution for Video Telematics, Driver Training & Management, ADAS, and vehicle monitoring. Its OBD-II and GNSS interfaces remove the need for an additional Telematics Control Unit (TCU), and Its integrated LTE/4G cellular means not other in-vehicle modem required. Furthermore, the Smarter AI™ Dashcam system can share its cellular Internet connection with other devices through Wi-Fi.

Neat cabling & tamper-proof installation

Regardless if a vehicle is always used by the same person or by different people all the time, such as rental cars, visible cables, and accessible buttons that can be fiddled with are always an issue. AnyConnect Smarter AI™ Dashcam has explicitly been designed with the cockpit and the driver in mind. It’s as discreet as possible and hard to tamper with. This design dramatically reduces in-field support requests.

Easy driver authentication

How do you know which driver drives which vehicle? AnyConnect Smarter AI™ Dashcam has a simple solution to this problem. It’s equipped with an in-built NFC card reader, supporting leading, secured, corporate access control credentials, such as MiFare & FeliCA, as well as RFID (HF) ISO14443A&B & ISO15693. You’re most likely to be able to reuse your existing credentials without distributing new ones, as long as they comply with the standards listed above. A loudspeaker reminds a driver to authenticate him/herself.

See inside and around your vehicles, in real-time

With up to 3 cameras with wide Field of View (FoV), the Smarter AI™ Dashcam gives you high-definition (1080p) coverage of the inside as well as the outside of your vehicles. The in-cabin camera is equipped with a non-human-eye visible IR illuminator to give you a good view of the driver and the passengers. The outdoor cameras have been tuned to offer excellent low light capabilities. On top of that, the Smarter AI™ Dashcam is equipped with a loudspeaker and a microphone to facilitate safe driver interactions.

Real-time, connected and AI-driven alarm system

Be alerted, in real-time, when someone is loitering around your vehicles. The Smarter AI™ Dashcam will send you an alert with live video and audio stream if it detects loitering. You will be able to speak through the loudspeaker of the camera in real-time.

Centralized management

Manage your deployments of AnyConnect’s Smarter AI™ Dashcam from a single interface. Fleet Management Systems, which are easy to integrate using AnyConnect REST APIs., are perfect for managing your camera networks. You can also use AnyConnect centralized web configuration and monitoring tool: Console. Whether you use one or the other, managing users, cameras, access rights, health monitoring, and even have an understanding of the quality level of each connection between a camera and a client, is made easy.

Access-control & onboarding

AnyConnect’s Smarter AI™ Dashcam leverages AnyConnect Smarter Camera Platform, which takes care of Access control and onboarding, as well as to push the device’s configuration, over-the-air. The onboarding process is done through a smartphone or a tablet when the camera is installed in a vehicle. AnyConnect offers zero-touch mass onboarding as well, upon request.

Natively connected

AnyConnect’s Smarter AI™ Dashcam is natively connected, with no VPN or other complex network equipment needed. With its Instant Connections as well as Adaptive Bitrate Streaming capabilities, AnyConnect’s Smarter AI™ Dashcam excels in dealing with “difficult” and intermittent networks, such as Cellular(4G/LTE) and Wi-Fi.

Edge AI

Most dashcams, today, have no, or very minimal HAAR-based video analytics. Video analytics are running on the dashcam’s CPU or DSP. AnyConnect’s Smarter AI™ Dashcam comes equipped with a power-efficient AI accelerator. This AI Accelerator enables you to run multiple AI Models at the same time while minimizing power drain to the vehicle. The AnyConnect’s Smarter AI™ Dashcam supports AnyConnect Smarter Camera Platform’s novel way to deploy deep learning-based AI Models to the edge at scale through AI Containers.

Programmable Event Button

On the road, everything is happening very quickly. What happens when your drivers see something important or need help? Because using a smartphone while driving is dangerous and illegal in many jurisdictions around the world, AnyConnect’s Smarter AI™ Dashcam has a single, large, easy to reach, and visible, programmable button paired with an LED. Buy pairing the button press event with audio feedback, through the dashcam’s loudspeaker; you can create simple and intuitive actions for your drivers. For instance, when the programmable event button is pressed, it triggers a pre/post-recording and plays an audio message, stating that “the footage has been recorded and that a second press within X seconds will establish a bi-directional call to the operations center”.
