Amika Mobile and Mobility Insight announce connected vehicle systems for intelligent borders
Amika Mobile and Mobility Insight (Mobi) say they are working on a collaborative project focused on intelligent border security and connected vehicle systems. Amika Mobile’s Amika Mobility Server (AMS) platform for critical and emergency communications with hybrid cloud and on-premise capability is being leveraged by Mobi. The AMS is a patented intelligent agent platform that is designed to process thousands of simultaneous events while automatically discovering mobile devices in public places such as border crossings and airports and stadiums to instantly assist in critical situations and evacuations as a crisis unfolds. Mobi’s cloud system and IoT sensor network are designed to allow prediction and analytics and optimization of traffic. The two companies are working on a joint project for the government of Canada with partial support from the Canada-Israel Industrial Research and Development Foundation (CIIRDF).
"It is excellent to be working with Mobi who is an innovator in the intelligent traffic management and guidance of connected vehicles (V2X). Amika Mobile is always aiming at the forefront of technology with just-in-time information and it made sense for us to bring the latest security and safety product innovations to connected vehicles and intelligent border crossings, where we can continue to leverage AI within our AMS platform to save lives," said Amika Mobile CEO Dr. Sue Abu-Hakima.
"This project is a unique use of connected vehicle technology for mobility optimization. Our ability to manage demand and reduce bottlenecks is key to the future of mobility and reduced traffic congestion. Intelligent border crossings are an ideal use case of Mobi's solutions, and together with Amika Mobile, we are able to bring this innovative solution to the security market," said Dov Ganor, CEO of Mobility Insight.
Mobi leverages data fusion from legacy systems, intelligent sensors, V2X, and DSRC (dedicated short-range communications). Mobi’s solutions also support V2X event mobility management, traffic control and optimization, as well as tasks such as master transportation planning.
The AMS intelligent agent platform enables situational awareness, information sharing, rapid two-way communications across devices and networks, and control through advanced integration with physical security including gunshot detection sensors to trigger lockdowns with looped voice over the paging system. AMS alerts and tracks responses from any communication layer, including connected vehicles as well as callouts, VoIP, SMS, pop-ups, push, email, overhead monitors, digital signs, Twitter or tickers, based on sensor events from gunshot detectors, access control, fire panels, camera systems, VMS, building automation, government agency or weather alerts, panic buttons, and Mobi's IoT sensor network.
