Applications Include Public Safety, Traffic Management and Resource Optimization
Rekor Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: REKR) ("Rekor"), a leading provider of innovative vehicle recognition systems, announced today it has joined the NVIDIA Metropolis Software Partner Program (“NVIDIA Metropolis”) and is leveraging NVIDIA Graphic Processing Units (“GPU”) to accelerate its OpenALPR vehicle recognition software. NVIDIA Metropolis is an intelligent video analytics platform that spans multiple NVIDIA products operating on a unified architecture.
NVIDIA Metropolis is paving the way for the creation of AI cities, making them safer and smarter by applying deep learning to video streams for applications such as public safety, traffic management and resource optimization. Rekor joins more than 100 NVIDIA AI City partner companies that are already providing products and applications using deep learning on its GPUs.
Through the power of NVIDIA AI and GPUs, Rekor’s sophisticated and revolutionary machine-learning enabled software not only scans and recognizes thousands of license plates per hour on multiple lanes with accuracy rates exceeding 99 percent, but also identifies vehicle make, model, color, and body type. Within an AI City environment, Rekor’s vehicle recognition software and systems, operating on NVIDIA GPUs, can be used for law enforcement, security, electronic toll collection, parking operations, banking and insurance, logistics, traffic management and customer loyalty.
Rekor’s Chief Science Officer Mathew Hill commented, “We are proud to be a part of NVIDIA’s Metropolis Software Partner Program to further expand their thriving ecosystem. Together, we’re taking advantage of the more than 1 billion video cameras that will be in cities by the year 2020 to solve a dizzying array of problems.”
Rekor’s software can turn any IP camera into a vehicle recognition camera that serves as a collection point for license plate and vehicle information such as make, model, and color. This AI-based product achieves 99.02% accuracy, analyzes large volumes of data, and finds corresponding correlationsfor public safety, traffic management and resource optimization use.
