    Iris is the name of the Greek goddess of messages and travel and of IRIS™ - Intelligent Road Information Systems with Artificial Intelligence that takes the dashcam concept to another level. Dashcams are basically dumb cameras that record the road and can provide evidence in case of an accident.

    The built-in Artificial Intelligence in IRIS™ actively monitors the road and driver to detect and provide beeps and voice warnings of potential hazards to help prevent accidents in the first place. IRIS™ is a state-of-the-art all-in-one mobile digital video recorder (MDVR) safety solution which integrates AI safety systems, high definition cameras, high capacity Micro-SD storage, GPS, WiFi, and Live View over cellular network.

    IRIS™ is a multi-camera advanced MDVR designed to protect your drivers and enhance road safety by integrating cameras with artificial intelligence and the option to live view the cameras via cellular network. It features a road-facing Advanced Dashcam (AD) camera and a Driver-Safe-Cabin (DSC) camera and an option to add two more cameras. With live view capabilities, dual MicroSD card storage, and driver safety features, it is ideal for police, emergency services, oil & gas transportation, school bus, public transportation, VIP transportation, ride-sharing services, recreational vehicles, and many more applications, including passenger cars.

    IRIS™ supports four (4) video channels:
  • Integrated 5 MegaPixel (MP) road-facing camera with Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS).
  • Integrated 2MP cabin-facing Driver-Safe-Cabin (DSC) camera with Driver Monitoring System (DMS).
  • Optional internal or external Analog High Definition (AHD) camera or internal Driver Monitoring System (DMS) camera, and
  • Optional internal or external Internet Protocol (IP) camera.

  • Remote Live View. The built-in Remote Live View capability of IRIS™ is a game changer, it can provide immediate remote live views of the road and driver.
  • Who is driving? It's easy, just log in via a computer, tablet, or cell phone app and see a live view of the cabin camera!
  • Where's the vehicle? It's easy, with built-in GPS, you simply log in and see it on a map and view the cameras. GPS systems have been popular for a long time, but with IRIS™ you also have a view of the cameras!
  • What are the driving conditions? It's easy, just log in and see the view of the road with a camera equipped with a 5MP sensor, the highest in the industry.
  • How fast is the vehicle going? It's easy, the speed is displayed with the road camera!
  • How many warnings have been issued? It's easy, all the warnings issued can be displayed and analyzed in real time.

  • The biggest advantage of Live View comes from the Hawthorne effect. If the driver knows that the cameras can be observed, the driver's driving habits may improve, fostering a more cautious and responsible approach to the road. The Hawthorne effect is the phenomenon where individuals alter their behavior, often improving or modifying their actions, simply because they know they are being observed. IRIS™ has a built-in cellular LTE module which supports a 4G nano SIM card from AT&T®, U.S. Cellular®, T-Mobile®, and Verizon®. Note: the Remote Live View option requires you to provide an activated "Machine-to-Machine" (M2M) nano SIM card from your cellular provider and purchase the Live View plan when you place your order. The cellular service is optional and is billed separately by your cellular provider.

    WiFi Support. IRIS™ has integrated WiFi to connect to an iOS/Android cellphone or tablet via Apps to configure the options or Live View.

    Driver Safety Features. The integrated dual cameras of IRIS™ use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to constantly monitor and detect road dangers and unsafe driving behaviors to help reduce collisions by alerting drivers with audible warnings that include a beep and a voice message. The front camera provides Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW) as part of the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS). The Driver-Safe-Cabin (DSC) camera uses AI to detect driver fatigue, phone usage, distracted driving, and more. Why is it important to have a driver monitoring camera and a road monitoring camera? To warn drivers of road hazards, distractions or signs of fatigue so that they can to take a break before they fall asleep-on-the-wheel or otherwise become incapacitated. "Thirty-four percent of drivers who crashed because they drifted from their lanes were sleeping or otherwise incapacitated...An additional 13% of these drivers had a non-incapacitating medical issue, blood alcohol concentration (BAC) ≥ 0.08%, or other physical factor...When crashes involved serious or fatal injuries, 42% of drivers who drifted were sleeping or otherwise incapacitated, and an additional 14% were impacted by a non-incapacitating medical issue, BAC ≥ 0.08%, or other physical factor." This means that the other drivers that drifted from their lanes and crashed were not sleeping or intoxicated!

    Although warnings may seem annoying and intrusive to the driver at first, educating the driver of the benefits of the warnings, such as Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) can help them understand the importance of these features, leading to increased awareness and safer driving habits over time. For instance, crash statistics show that lane departure warning systems have reduced all crashes related to unintentional lane departures. "Crashes resulting from lane departures can be among the deadliest collisions." LDW systems significantly lower involvement rates in crashes.

    In 2020 statistics from the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reported the following:
    Vehicle and (Type of Crash) Number Involved in Crashes Casualties
    Large Trucks (Fatal Crash)
    9,099 killed
    Passenger Cars and Light Trucks (Fatal Crash)
    29,914 killed
    Large Trucks (Injury Crash)
    146,930 injured
    Passenger Cars and Light Trucks (Injury Crash)
    2,045,174 injured

    In addition, in 2021 there were 362,415 crashes in the USA due to distracted drivers, which included 28,994 due to cell phone use. Users of cell phones typically lose track of their speed and surroundings, either they end up going slower than the traffic flow, or if they have cruise control engaged, do not react fast enough to slow down when traffic flow changes.

    Adding IRIS™ to passenger cars and trucks to actively monitor the road and driver can significantly enhance safety, providing real-time alerts and potentially reducing the likelihood of accidents.
