IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MuHu, Inc., pioneer of visual intelligence technologies for the transportation industry, today announced the launch of MuHu, the first mobile app and platform as a service (PaaS) to deliver dual live streaming, on-demand video, and unsafe driving alerts directly to the cloud. Now, safety- and budget-conscious transportation businesses can leverage smartphones and tablets to gain a complete picture of what's happening on the road, all in real-time, empowering them to proactively prevent crashes and protect themselves from liability.
"MuHu has transformed the way I manage my fleet," said Douglas Howell, vice president of service and maintenance at TruStar Energy, a CNG station services company operating 500 vehicles. "I can literally ride right along with my drivers now—I see what they see, no matter where I am. That means I can coach them to be safer and more efficient. And, I can protect them—and TruStar—on those occasions we do get complaints about accidents or property damage, where we weren't at fault."
The MuHu ecosystem features:
- An open video platform as a service (VPaaS)
- Intelligent video analytics, powered by deep learning and big data
- A self-healing mobile app
The simple app download means drivers can be up-and-running in just five minutes. And, since MuHu is a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) solution, fleets can avoid proprietary hardware and drilling into their vehicles.
"MuHu began as a moonshot project," said MuHu founder, CEO and CTO, Blake Gasca. "I saw tremendous potential to make people safer on the road by leveraging IoT and deep learning technologies. The challenge was implementing all this functionality into a mobile device; a challenge we solved by combining mobile and cloud processing."
Today, the MuHu driver app captures up to 4K resolution video on Android devices; an iOS app expected in Q2. Video and GPS data is then streamed to the cloud-based MuHu Live fleet management portal.
The MuHu Live web portal and app deliver fleet managers G-sensor alerts, safety and performance analytics, and, coming soon, ADAS alerts. Now, managers can remotely view live video and search video clips for an accurate picture of safety events. This means businesses will be equipped with the irrefutable evidence they need to address unsafe driving, protect responsible drivers from fraudulent claims, and safeguard their businesses from costly litigation and large jury awards.
Transportation businesses today can use MuHu as a standalone fleet management solution—or integrate MuHu into their existing platform with MuHu's open API. In the future, MuHu's open platform will deliver deeper visual intelligence, including facial recognition, to the transportation, security, and safety sectors.
With crash avoidance features, including real-time follow distance alerts, posted speed sign warnings, and lane departure alerts expected to roll out in Q1 2017, MuHu is poised to deliver the first live camera Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) app on a mobile device and the most powerful visual intelligence platform in the industry.
