Rhonda chose Brodmann17 for their cloud connected camera platform. The successful collaboration is set to disrupt the Video Telematics market
Rhonda Software, is a professional camera design house, providing advanced camera development for Automotive, Robotics and Intelligent Automation markets. They needed an ADAS camera platform solution, as they wanted to meet the demands from this market, which is set to grow from $8.2B in 2020 to $18.8B in 2025, according to analyst estimates. Beyond this immediate and fast-growing market, Video Telematics is also a multi-billion-dollar market for safety. With the increase of government initiatives around vehicle safety, automotive vision systems are projected to grow at a CAGR of 14.4% by 2028.
Fleet vehicle accidents are among the most costly of injury claims for business. The average cost of a loss related to vehicle accidents is approximately $70,000. This is almost twice the cost of the average workplace injury ($36,592).
Hence Rhonda were keen to find a reputable company with whom they could develop a comprehensive solution.
Brodmann17 developed the ADAS camera platform based on the Ambarella (Nasdaq: AMBA) CV25 edge AI vision System on Chip (SoC). The ADAS solution combines an extensive camera feature set with the ultimate level of accuracy and performance to address the needs of the Video Telematics sector for increased driver safety and fleet efficiency.
The Ambarella CV25 edge AI vision processor provides maximum accuracy and speed for AI operations, which is important for cameras in active traffic environments. Unlike general-purpose CPUs and GPUs, Ambarella’s CVflow® AI architecture includes a dedicated vision processing engine programmed with a high-level algorithm description, which enables it to scale performance to trillions of operations per second with extremely low power consumption.
Brodmann17’s software saves significantly on compute power, which allows for real-time, edge video processing on-camera. The platform provides predictive notifications on road events, gathered by the camera, and detected by the ADAS perception software. The fully-fledged ADAS set includes forward collision warning, lane keeping assistance, pedestrian, and vehicle detection.
For enhanced monitoring capabilities, the ADAS platform is enabled with Cloud and Wi-Fi connectivity. Identified road events are automatically uploaded to the cloud with a 10 second before and after incident video recording. Another major advantage of the solution is that the CV library integration offers extremely fast deployment as well as allowing customers to add unique features and functionality for their specific needs.
The ADAS platform developed includes the following feature set:
• Ambarella CV25A75 SoC
• Integrated AI for front-view ADAS
• High resolution video capture, up to 1920 x1080
• High quality Sony image sensor
• Built in Wi-Fi connectivity
• External GNSS module
• Connected Video Cloud
• Mobile App for Video Cloud recordings access
• 6MP@30 H.264 / H.265 recording
• Low-weight and small form-factor shaped camera (W 50mm x H 44mm).
“This product should disrupt the Video Telematics space as it offers customers a fast start to a new automotive camera product development system. The ADAS solution we’ve developed is scalable and can be deployed quickly as it’s hardware agnostic, making for an easy in-car setup. We’re proud to be a company of choice by these business,” added Adi Pinhas, CEO of Brodmann17.
