Riding the wave of their 2021 Cisco global Innovation challenge win, 365mesh owner and creator Outcomex has taken home the ARN 2021 Tech Innovation: Digital Transformation Award for TransportDeck! The TransportDeck industry solution is built on the 365mesh IoT platform.
This award was celebrated during ARN’s black-tie event at ICC Sydney on 9th December which brought together more than 700 members of Australia’s channel community. The winners were selected from 315 finalists (including 85+ individuals) which made the shortlist from a pool of over 195 organisations and more than 470 nominations, spanning partner, start-up, telco, vendor and distributor businesses.
Outcomex was previously awarded the ARN Tech Innovation award for Emerging Technologies in 2020 for FoodDeck, their IoT solution for the food and hospitality industry, also built on the 365mesh platform.
TransportDeck: the winning solution
This win recognises Outcomex’s innovation within TransportDeck, providing the Transport and Mobility Sector the ability to monitor, count and gather information around transport areas such as pick-up drop off (PUDO) bays, taxi and bus ranks, and pedestrian traffic areas.
What Outcomex delivered
Through the utilisation of Cisco APIs and industrial hardware, Meraki cameras and advanced object recognition capabilities with our AI/ML algorithms, TransportDeck offers real-time visibility and analytics allowing our customers to make informed business decisions to improve area accessibility and to manage people and traffic flow.
Outcomex’s AI/ML algorithms are integrated with existing technology in the cameras we use. This allows more advanced detection and counting capabilities to achieve the analytic use cases required in the transport industry. Integrating our AI/ML algorithms will automatically gather the analytical information required with the following accuracy levels: 93% were found for vehicle wait times, 88% for people wait times, 96% for vehicle occupancies and 86% for ride details (number of people boarding and alighting cars, taxis and buses).
Some use cases available in TransportDeck which utilise our smart camera capabilities include:
- Pedestrian counting
- Vehicle counting
- Vehicle type recognition
- Pedestrian wait time monitoring
- Number plate recognition
- Parking occupancy monitoring
