Transportation of goods plays a vital role in the global economy, enabling large companies to deliver products to customers across vast distances. However, this process is not without its challenges. From logistical complexities to efficiency issues, companies face numerous obstacles that hinder their transportation operations. This is where innovations emerging from Taiwan are making a difference by offering promising solutions that address transportation challenges.
To push the limits of these innovations, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, established the Taiwan Excellence Awards. Since its inception in 1993, this award has been continuously recognising brands that are shaping industries worldwide. Every year, selected brands are subjected to a rigorous and stringent selection system that covers four major aspects of “R&D”, “Design”, “Quality” and “Marketing” to identify outstanding products that offer “Innovative Value” while satisfying the key criterion of being “made in Taiwan”. Products that win the recognition then serve as examples of the domestic industries and are promoted by the government in the international market in order to shape the creative image for Taiwanese businesses.
Two such award winning products include Smarter AI Mirror by EverFocus and Video Telematics & Management Solution by MiTAC Digital Technology Corporation.
EverFocus’s Smarter AI Mirror features a built-in Neural-network Processing Unit (NPU), which is an innovative application of bionic technology. Its AI object-recognition is applied to video streaming to perform three recognition models: object detection, body recognition, and object cutting. This Video Streaming is composed of continuous image frames, and identifies all image frames through the AI object-recognition and the neural network processor (NPU).
The Smarter AI Mirror is equipped with optical flow detection that helps in measuring vehicle’s movements and directions more accurately. Packed with waterproof IP67 and low latency display, it warns drivers with warning icons, triggers and alarm sounds.
On the other hand MiTAC’s video telematics and management solution combines Big Data, Edge AI computing and AIoT, in order to minimize potential accidents, maximize safety and efficiency of fleet operations. Its Edge AI computing power, the ADAS/DMS, helps in making instant detection and warning. It also helps the fleet operator to closely monitor the situation of the transportation remotely through a two-way comm.
MiTAC’s VisionMax helps record and analyse all the unusual driving behaviors. It records all the critical data on both SD card and cloud, which can be further analysed in case of an accident. The recordings are protected and made tamper proof using the Block-Chain technology.
The above-mentioned smart fleet management products are crucial for large companies as they enable real-time monitoring of vehicles, fuel consumption, and driver behavior, leading to better route planning, reduced fuel costs, and enhanced safety. Such technological advancements from Taiwan offer viable solutions that can revolutionize the transportation industry, paving the way for a more efficient and environmentally conscious future.
