The topic this week is "vehicle video analysis" as Jorit Schmelzle - a recent speaker at Geomob Berlin - joins Ed to talk about his company: Peregrin. Using various devices such as dash cams or smartphones, Peregrin collects visual data for real time interventions as well as later use. Primarily used by professional driver fleets, the data helps to alert drivers on their journeys in various dangerous situations. The data can also help drivers later to review situations or provide information on vehicle safety. The video data can also be useful for third parties like mapmakers or city road crews. Tune in to find out they are able to collect the data while ensuring privacy is protected, and what's in store for the future or Peregrin.
Every week we discuss themes from the geo industry, interview Geomob speakers, and provide regular updates about our own projects.
