Cipia, an AI computer vision in-cabin automotive solutions provider, and Intcomex, the leading platform for value-added solutions and technology products in Latin America and the Caribbean, today announced a partnership to meet the dramatically growing demand for video telematics and driver monitoring solutions in the LATAM commercial fleets market.
Over a ten year period, from 2000-2010, the traffic fatality rate in Latin American and the Carribean rose to nearly double that of Europe. With the rising rate of accidents overall, and the growing concern about driver distraction related accidents in commercial vehicles specifically, finding solutions to increase road safety is paramount.
Cipia-FS10 uses AI and computer vision algorithms to detect driver drowsiness, distraction, identity, and dangerous actions such as smoking and holding a cellphone while driving. The system connects to the customer’s existing FMS server, providing real-time alerts to the driver as well as tailored alerts to the fleet manager and dispatcher.
Intcomex is the premiere value-added distributor of IT products with over 50,000 customers in over 41 countries. The company will offer the Cipia-FS10 solution to the fleet industry across Latin America.
“The demand for advanced video telematics capabilities across the globe and in the Latin American markets is on the rise” said David Tolub, CEO of Cipia. “We look forward to working closely with Intcomex and believe that our partnership will help increase the safety and improve the efficiency of fleets through the combination of the Cipia-FS10 system and fleet management expertise of Intcomex.”
“In Intcomex, we have seen a tremendous opportunity in the transportation segment, thus we have created a division focused specifically in this vertical. We have partnered up with many of the World’s leading brands to bring innovative solutions into the Latin America market; and Cipia was a key solution we were missing and are happy to have found. With their understanding of the sector, best total cost of ownership and unmatched technology as a leader in computer vision AI, Cipia’s solution is the perfect fit for our reseller’s needs” added Rafael Danon, Director of IoT Transportation Division at Intcomex.
