SALT LAKE CITY, June 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — omniQ Corp (NASDAQ: OMQS) (“OMNIQ” or “the Company”), a provider of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and IoT-based solutions, announced today that it has received a contract at Philadelphia International Airport, to deploy its AI Based, EZ Edge™ VRS Deployment Kit which automates and monitors entry and exits of vehicles at the TNC Lane. EZ Edge™ operates on edge-based processing using our deep learning convolutional neural network engine along with our latest virtual loop technology.
EZ Edge™ will be deployed at Philadelphia International Airport’s TNC Lane for transportation network companies including Uber, Lyft and taxis, to help manage entrance to the TNC lot.
Through a unique third party integration with omniQ, EZ Edge™ enables tracking of TNC vehicles on airport property as geofencing technology identifies the TNC vehicle and sends data, including the license plate number, on the approaching vehicle to omniQ. Third party partners incorporate reporting and payment portals to correctly charge the TNC vehicles.
Upon EZ Edge™ detection & identification of the vehicle as it approaches the TNC holding lot, EZ Edge™ vends the gate and allows the driver to enter. omniQ Virtual Loop Technology is configured so that there are no physical ground loops needed to be cut into the pavement simplifying the installation and costs. The solution is AI Machine Vision based, and virtually detects objects and identifies the vehicles. The solution further assists in curb management, congestion, wait times, access control and correct billing for using the airport for pick-up and drop-off.
omniQ’s CEO, Shai Lustgarten stated, “Our AI based solution is proven to be effective in improving safety, traffic flow, parking management and law enforcement for Airports, Educational Campuses, Hospitals, Cities and Homeland Security Authorities. Our proprietary patented technology based on deep learning Neural Network models is our main marketing advantage. Following the recently announced new contracts with Georgia State University and the Medical Center, we are pleased to be working with our partners at the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) which serves more than 30 million passengers annually. PHL customers are eager to enter and exit the airport, often via TNC vehicles. EZ Edge™ AI-based technology enables more effective monitoring, security and management of the TNC lane, eases congestion and helps the airport, TNC drivers and passengers save time and money.”
“This is a new application for our AI based Vehicle Recognition technology and adds to our AI based machine vision leadership in airports joining many others like ATL, LAX, DFW, JFK, EWR, FLL and DTW that have experienced the incredible benefits in accuracy, speed and reliability of our solutions,” concluded Mr. Lustgarten.
