We believe that a strategic partnership with a leading player like Digital Barriers is the ideal platform for developing a new way forward in our industry and answering the evolving needs of consumers on a global scale.”
“We want to help NEXT provide its customers with a more secure, enhanced user experience whilst also better understanding the status of individual vehicles to enhance fleet security, and create tailored services and solutions that can be customized for each user,” said Zak Doffman, CEO, Digital Barriers.
“Our live facial recognition and live video streaming technologies already lead the market for performance and cost-effectiveness, and as this partnership with NEXT clearly illustrates, have the potential for widespread adoption as facial recognition and wireless video streaming become mainstream embedded solutions,” Doffman added.
