Iveda Launches AI-Based IvedaMobile for Face and License Plate Recognition

Iveda announced the launch of the second generation of IvedaMobile. The IvedaMobile app is designed to transform a smartphone or tablet into a video surveillance camera, becoming part of an existing video surveillance system integrated with IvedaAI.

Per the company, using the camera on the mobile device, IvedaMobile enables searches for faces and license plate numbers anytime, anywhere that surveillance cameras are not available or do not cover certain areas. Users can stream live video without complicated setup or teardown. The platform is ideal for emergency use applications to augment existing security cameras.

IvedaAI facial recognition detects faces in real-time and provides an alert when a match from a face database is found. According to the company, IvedaAI face recognition is used in thousands of cameras for access control, greeting VIP guests, and identifying known shoplifters and unauthorized individuals. The same functions can now be performed using a mobile device.

Also, according to the company, Instant License Plate Recognition (LPR) using IvedaMobile creates benefits for law enforcement, vehicle parking lots, security teams, government buildings, and more. LPR has proven to be effective in crime deterrence, stakeouts, vehicle parking verification, collecting and analyzing data and providing real-time solutions. IvedaMobile is a new tool for security personnel at sporting venues and special public events. It is also ideal for locating a missing child at a crowded mall or searching for a suspected vehicle during an Amber Alert.

Law enforcement agencies who implement IvedaAI with IvedaMobile in their local schools and businesses can provide the app to employees and teachers for streaming live video to law enforcement in an emergency using their smartphone.

IvedaMobile can be used to detect and recognize license plates on moving and stationary vehicles. The technology can detect and recognize license plate number formats from more than 120 countries.

According to Statista, smartphone subscriptions worldwide surpass six billion and is forecast to grow by several hundred million in the next few years and according to Grand View Research, video streaming market is forecast to be worth $223.98 billion by 2028.
