OMNIQ Corp. (OTCQB: OMQS) (“OMNIQ” or “the Company”), a provider of Supply Chain and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based solutions, today announced that the Company has been selected by the City of Adrian Georgia to deploy its QShield vehicle recognition systems (VRS) technology and its cloud based citation management platform to identify any vehicle driving through the city which is on a National Crime Information Center (NCIC) data base or the Georgia Bureau of Investigations Database (GBI Database) and issue citations to scofflaws driving through the city with outstanding traffic violations.
QShield, OMNIQ’s AI-based machine vision VRS solution uses patented Neural Network algorithms that imitate human brains for pattern recognition and decision-making. More than 17,000 OMNIQ AI-based machine vision sensors are installed worldwide, including approximately 7,000 in the U.S.Based on superior accuracy and patented features like identification of make and color combined with superior accuracy based on the sophisticated algorithm and machine learning that largely depends on accumulated data provided by thousands of sensors already deployed.
“When a vehicle associated with a criminal investigation and on a National Crime Information Centerdata base or a scofflaw vehicle with outstanding traffic violations or expired, suspended or revoked registration passes QShield’s sensors that are deployed throughout the city, OMNIQ’s QShield system automatically triggers a real-time alert to the Adrian Police Department. Additionally, scofflaws when captured by the sensors are issued, on behalf of the city, citations via the QShield citation platform. Citations are then mailed to the vehicle’s registered owner and payments are processed through the QShield online payment platform” – said Shai Lustgarten CEO of OMNIQ.
QShield, OMNIQ’s VRS solution will be installed in several key intersections throughout the city to efficiently and accurately capture vehicle data, including license plate number, color, make, and model.
