Spillard’s innovative AI Human Detection System is the result of two years of extensive research and development, using algorithms and deep intelligent mapping to detect only humans, whether they are on foot or on a bicycle.
This innovative technology helps keep Spillard at the forefront of the vehicle safety market, helping to save lives in a range of different environments and scenarios. With commercial vehicles spending most of their time on busy roads, they are faced with vulnerable road users every single day. It is vital that we raise awareness of the potential of serious accidents, and this is why Spillard is pioneering the release of the revolutionary AI Human Detection System.
Clearly this figure is far too high and systems need to be put in place with the necessary technology able to work towards reducing these figures. Eliminating risk and reducing deaths to vulnerable road users (VRU) who have to co-exist around vehicles as it’s part of every day working life is Spillard’s objective. Using our 30 years of industry experience and internal R&D department, Spillard has designed the ideal solution to target this issue.
Pete Spillard, Managing Director: “The clear risks associated with moving vehicles cannot be understated. With new risks presenting themselves year on year, we see it as Spillard’s mission to help reduce the number of accidents, both fatal and non-fatal.
Spillard Safety Systems has evolved into one of the UK’s largest vehicle safety equipment suppliers to the commercial vehicle industry, with our customers ranging from HGV, public transport and LGV fleets.”
When operating vehicles on work sites, it is imperative that drivers and operators are provided with as much visibility as possible.
To start the process for installing AI Human Detection System we like to undertake our industry leading bespoke ‘Vision Studies’. These bespoke reports highlight areas of poor or no visibility on commercial vehicles. This free service is fundamental in providing the right solutions for your fleet that ultimately saves lives and reduces accidents.
1. Preparation. We produce a bespoke ‘Vision Study’ of your vehicles; we will focus on your vehicle’s vulnerabilities by identifying potential accident hot spots. You receive the study to help with driver behaviour training and direction on the correct safety equipment for your fleet.
2. Solution. We follow up by producing a detailed document that identifies the correct solutions such as 360° cameras, radar, speakers, in-cab screens, human detection devices etc. that will eliminate those blind spots on your vehicle.
Vehicle safety is not an off the shelf solution, consideration must be placed on 6 key areas, vision, detection, control, communication, warning, and data.
3. Installation. Our mobile team of technicians come to you, fit, and test all the required equipment and software, and finish by providing you with a paperless installation report with details and images that are sent directly to your phone.
Once installed an extra service is our one-year free use of our telematics system, Spillard Live. This allows you to: monitor, check route history, have prompt alerts sent directly to your phone or email, produce trend reports, examine fleet smart maintenance, vehicle tracking etc.
From years of working with all levels of vehicle safety, we understand the importance of data in tackling vulnerable road users safety. Our AI Human Detection System, coupled with our Spillard Live fleet management platform, not only deals with the immediate issue, but also provides you with instant warnings, reports, video, and data.
User friendly systems within the cab provide both visual and audible alerts, collaborating with what the devices pick up and instantly alerting the driver with illuminated coloured sections, depending on the direction of the alert. The driver can then react quickly and accordingly.
A HD intelligent human detection camera adopts deep learning technology to detect the human form in front of, on the side of and behind the vehicle in real time, warning drivers instantly of risks of collision with nearby humans. The intelligent camera can be installed on the side, front and back of the vehicle, to detect the human form in real time.
This technology can be applied to both heavy plant vehicles and HGV, with the flexibility of single or multiple cameras.
The idea of an AI Human Detection System is a straightforward one, yet it still requires advanced technology and Spillard’s knowledge base to ensure that cameras only detects vulnerable road users. High definition 1080P images and high levels of accuracy give operators the best possible vision, and allows for more reaction time.
Designed for the future of connected vehicle technology
The award-winning Spillard Live cloud platform captures, processes and learns from an equally innovative video telematics system that displays real-time video and analytics from multiple cameras over a fleet of vehicles simultaneously.
All of this live data is safely stored on a UK secured system with full GDPR compliance, providing invaluable trend analysis to support higher safety standards and aiding in better driving habits and accident reduction.
