SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quest Solution, Inc. (QUES), (“Quest” or “the Company”) a provider of Supply Chain and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based Machine Vision solutions, has announced that it has been selected to install a state-of-the-art AI-based safety and security system on the campus of a Pre-K – 12 preparatory School in South Florida. This system will provide enhanced safety for students, faculty and visitors to the school. For safety reasons the name of the school is not disclosed.
The Quest Safe School System is based on technology from Quest’s recently acquired subsidiary HTS Image Processing and offers real-time, automated vehicle recognition via machine vision. In a school setting, the system is hosted on a cloud-based platform integrated with campus intelligence, tracking vehicles, students, staff, deliveries and campus visitors. The Safe School System has whitelist and blacklist capabilities to immediately identify vehicles upon arrival, allowing the admittance of authorized cars or a real-time alarm for any unauthorized and/or suspicious vehicle.
The Safe School System can interface with government based databases to detect and provide real-time alerts on threats to the school campus including:
- Potential shooter threats
- Enforcement of restraining orders
- Attempted access by registered sex offenders
- Terror threats
- Criminal activities such as stolen vehicles, burglary and gang activity
The “Visual Cortex” algorithm is proprietary patented technology developed by a team of scientists and engineers from Quest’s wholly-owned subsidiary HTS IP. The algorithm has already been successfully deployed in sensitive areas in the Middle East, in various cities and locations in the US and in South America as part of Homeland Security and law enforcement efforts.
Shai Lustgarten, CEO of Quest, stated: “We are excited to have this opportunity to apply our cutting edge, efficient AI Visual Cortex technology to facilitate a safe school environment for students, staff and visitors. Campus security is of utmost importance, and our technology has the potential to be a game changing development for school safety in Florida and elsewhere. There are thousands of schools across the U.S. who could benefit from our Safe School technology and we are focused on introducing our solution to school districts nationwide.”
Mr. Lustgarten concluded, “As we continue enhancing our machine vision solutions, we are achieving unprecedented accuracy and are committed to providing our customers a reliable, proven security package. This order highlights the successful integration of our recent merger, as our sales teams are actively marketing the new HTS IP technology and were responsible for winning this important contract.”
