Commemorating UN Global Road Safety Week 2021, Pune-based SCDE Solutions Pvt. Ltd. has announced in the Indian market the launch of its latest innovation – a first-of-its-kind of Driver Status Monitor (DSM) System-based vehicle safety solution. At the moment, the DSM functionality has been made available in 3 camera devices being sold by Safe Cams, i.e. SC 200 AI, SC DS02 and SC 400. While SC200 AI and SC400 models can be configured without a DSM camera also, but on the other hand, the SC DS02 has been exclusively designed as a ‘DSM-only’ camera.
Notably, a DSM-enabled device makes use of Intelligent Machine Learning algorithms, a special infrared camera and sensors to monitor on-road driver alertness. The major purpose or objective of the Driver State Monitoring system is to alert the driver whenever signs of drowsiness or any kind of distractions are detected; it does so via an integrated and in-built Dangerous Driving Behavior Warning mechanism.
Speaking on the launch of their DSM cameras, Mr. Vanesh Naidoo, Founder & CEO, Safe Cams Digital Eye says, “We are proud to announce the roll-out of our latest DSM camera range for the Indian market during the ongoing Global Road Safety Week. With India accounting for roughly 11% of all road accidents worldwide, we definitely need to find innovative ways to reduce fatal road accidents and mishaps. We at Safe Cams have been always striving to educate people about the dangers of reckless driving, and with our latest launch of the Driver State Monitor technology based safety solutions, we are hoping to be able to contribute towards reducing road accidents and mishaps in our country upto a significant extent, most of which are caused due to driver fatigue or inattentiveness.”
“These DSM cameras have been developed by us based on extensive R&D done through open-source facial and gesture recognition software, which our team later modified to identify for specific markers such as eyes being closed, yawning, eyes not facing front, among others. A lot of time was spent by us in terms of training the AI to recognize these markers/triggers, as we wanted to ensure we were able to obtain a 98-99% accuracy rate on all our devices. We have decided to primarily market and sell the DSM-enabled devices to long-haul, high-value truck owners of India, who can see quicker return on investment from our devices. We are also seeing interest from the local and state governments for this technology, and are in talks with companies involved in rapid-transit bus services. We are hoping that if our DSM cameras can be fitted to public transport services at scale, the risk of accidents occurring could be minimized dramatically,” adds Mr. Vanesh Naidoo.
Safe Cams’ advance DSM-enabled safety cameras have the capability to deliver automatic warnings (alarms) based on the following:
- Driver fatigue alarm: Through facial and eye tracking, the DSM will detect if the driver’s eyes have been closed for between 1 to 3 seconds.
- Driver distraction alarm: Through facial and head position tracking,the DSM will detect if the driver is not paying attention to the road ahead.
- Smoking alarm: Through gesture detection, the DSM can detect if the driver is smoking.
- Mobile phone use alarm: Through gesture detection, the DSM will detect if the driver is using their mobile phone while driving.
- Non-detection alarm: If the DSM cannot detect any facial features for over 3 seconds, it will ring the alarm. Further, if the camera is tampered with or covered, the alarm will alert the management/vehicle owners of the situation.
- Driver ID recognition: When the DSM detects that the driver has left the monitor’s ‘capture scope area’ and then re-appeared afterwards, it will compare the present driver’s characteristics with the previous one, and if there is a discrepancy (if both of them are not the same person), the alarm will be sounded.
Speeding alarm: Based on the speed computed from the GPS, the DSM can warn the driver if he/she is speeding up beyond the permissible limit.
Increase Your Productivity with Canon’s New Ink Tank Printers
Canon India launched the MAXIFY GX7070 and MAXIFY GX6070 ink tank printers to meet high volume demands for color printing across small and mid-size offices. With water-resistant, fast printing and flexible paper handling, the two new printers are designed to combine productivity and laser printer-like efficiency and enable users to increase business productivity.
Sharing his thoughts on the announcement, Mr. Manabu Yamazaki, President and CEO, Canon India said, “India has been one of the most important markets for Canon’s printing business, having received a huge acceptance for our ink tank printers amongst all customers. It has been our constant endeavour to bring forth the latest technological innovations, catering to diverse and evolving demands of our customers. Continuing the momentum in 2021, we have introduced 13 models of ink tank printers so far, bringing our customers the most innovative, cost effective and productive solutions. As we continue to grow stronger, we are proud to extend the ink tank technology to our flagship MAXIFY series, reinforcing our commitment to the growth of small businesses in the country. We are optimistic that the new MAXIFY range of printers will boost efficiency for small and mid-sized businesses, along with reinventing their printing experience at utmost utility value.”
Designed to enhance ease of use, convenience, and productivity for end-users, the new MAXIFY printers offer a brilliant amalgamation of next-level modern technology and cost optimization. It further contributes to a low total of ownership with increased efficiency thus making it an essential part of office functioning.
Speaking about the new products, Mr. C Sukumaran, Director, Consumer System Products & Imaging Communication Business highlighted, “As the entrepreneurship culture continues to grow in the country, SMEs and SOHOs are looking at strengthening their workflow to scale their business further. At Canon, we want to play an important role in their growth journey by providing them with innovative products in line with their requirements. We are seeing a greater adoption of mobile and cloud printing amongst small businesses, along with the increasing demand for high volume color printing. Addressing such demands, our new range of MAXIFY printers utilizes a high-volume continuous ink supply system which significantly reduces ink costs for color printing. These printers will help small set-ups streamline their printing infrastructure and increase employee productivity by leveraging the high volume efficient color printing feature.”
High Yield Ink Bottles with Low Colour Printing Costs
Large ink tanks and high-volume ink bottles significantly reduce ink costs for both monochrome and colour printing. A full set of ink delivers approximately 6,000 grayscale pages and 14,000 pages in colour.
For businesses that need to print even more without compromising on quality and text legibility, an Economy mode setting pushes output to 9,000 and 21,000 pages of grayscale and colour respectively. Businesses can now print colour pages whenever the need arises without having to worry about the cost.
The ability to print on a variety of textures and print surfaces also ensures businesses do not need to buy different printers when there is a need to switch between envelopes, labels, glossy paper, and banner paper. This versatility makes the MAXIFY GX7070 and MAXIFY GX6070 a remarkable flexible print workhorse suitable for all types of printing.
Water Resistant Documents Resist Smudging and Accidental Water Spills
The use of pigment inks delivers water-resistant document prints on plain paper, lending a laser print-like quality not found in conventional inkjet printers. Text, colour bars, and charts will resist smudging when in contact with highlighter pens, while rain splashes and accidental water spills can dry out without colour bleeding and destruction to printed content.
Increasing Business Efficiency and Productivity
The MAXIFY GX7070 and MAXIFY GX6070 are packed with features that prioritize productivity and efficiency for busy offices and businesses. With duplex (automatic two-sided) printing, combined with large paper cassettes, less time is spent to replenish paper supplies.
Both printers come with an automatic document feeder (ADF). Together with the convenience of a front-USB port, users can load up to 50 sheets of document originals on the ADF to be duplicated or scanned into digital storage, on their computers, USB-removable storage, and even into mobile devices like smartphones and tablet PCs. On the MAXIFY GX7070, there is an additional bonus in single-pass duplex scanning, where both sides of a two-sided document can be scanned in a single paper pass. The MAXIFY GX7070 has a maximum paper loading capacity of 600 sheets while the MAXIFY GX6070 has a maximum paper loading capacity of 350 sheets.
The MAXIFY GX7070 and MAXIFY GX6070 also feature a game-changing modular, user-replaceable maintenance cartridge that can be obtained over the counter in retail. The benefits of this design are twofold: minimizing device downtime when faced with the daunting prospect of a large number of prints yet to be completed, and the removal of the need to schedule a service visit or to carry the printer to the nearest service centre.
Stay Connected All the Time
The MAXIFY GX7070 and MAXIFY GX6070 are built with modern businesses and home offices in mind, flexible enough to be placed anywhere in the office as they come with not just wired network interfaces, but also wireless1 connectivity. Users can setup and operate the printers using the free Canon PRINT Inkjet/ SELPHY mobile app, as well as print from the cloud.
Pricing and availability
MAXIFY GX6070- INR 47,348.00
MAXIFY GX7070- INR 58,621.00
