Howen AI Solution Enhanced Cold Chain Logistics

Howen Thermal solution has empowered the world to fight back Covid-19 and adapt to the new normal. While on the other side, with the increasing debut of Covid-19 vaccine, a prompt and responsive cold chain logistics solution to transport the covid-19 vaccines becomes so vital in the fleet industry as experts estimated that at least 12 billion vaccines will be needed over the world.

Market challenges

The unprecedented amount of vaccines will need to be carried from pharma to different districts even across continents, which requires complex and agile cold chain management. However, other than solely adding the supply chain, there are more challenges underneath for carrier, airline, and pharma companies.

Wastage and spoilage are the main problems


Shefali Kapadia / Supply Chain Dive, analysis by IATA

According to a study published last year, a quarter of vaccines are degraded in the arrival at the destination which can owe to inappropriate shipping and storage processes. And a degraded vaccine, on the one hand, would cause a considerable financial loss that could be estimated at 31 billion dollars annually. On the other hand, a seemly slight delay of vaccination could lead to countless deaths and consistent shutdown, especially for a rural area with undeveloped transportation. Even if the vaccines arrive on time, vaccines with decreased effectiveness might be ineffective and the patients might be required to revaccinated.
What’s worth noticing is that the newly developed vaccines have a higher storage requirement that Moderna’s vaccine should be kept under minor 20 Celcius while Pfizer’s vaccine should be stored at minus 70 Celcius. That is to say, vaccine storage temperature has become the biggest challenge and a subtle temperature mistake in cold chain management could cause millions of losses for vaccine stakeholders.

Every second matter in vaccine transportation.

Vaccine security is another huge challenge for vaccine cold chain logistics. How to secure vaccines from pilferage throughout the shipping is directly related to human life. Furthermore, smooth the connection among four transport phases should be taken into consideration since every second matter to secure the vaccine activity and patients for inoculation.

Howen Works with Auto Maker for AI Video Solution

Over a decade of vehicle service experiences have made Howen of great reputations worldwide. Our successful deployment of MDVR and VSS won many returned clients who spread good words of our cases in their countries. With these countless endorses and referrals, we recently started a cooperation with an international leading automobile company, which has exported over 80,000 units of buses accumulatively to 130+ countries.

We are collaborating closely with this vehicle company to launch an AI video solution project for 100 coach buses in Middle East. In contract to transit buses which are typically used for short-distance transportation, coach buses are constructed for long-distance service like touring and international service which requires higher speed.

Our client was awared of the potential issues that involved drivers’ misconduct like the tragedy happened in the U.S. two years ago, which could more possibly occur on the faster coach buses on long-lasting driving.  Therefore, the vehicle company proposed utilizing AI technology to minimalize potential risks and ensure passengers’ safety. After further analyzing the application environment and special needs, we initiated customizing and testing a complex AI video solution.

360 degrees protection from MDVR and AI system

The Howen 4 channels ME32-04 MDVR featured in the solution supports multiple optional modules and peripherals. As the data collector of the coach bus, it connects with our V24, V26, V30 vehicle cameras which include all viewing of the coach bus. These AHD cameras with 1/3” 1M  Sony CMOS and more than 12 pieces of IR to ensure extraordinary recording quality day and night.

What’s worth mentioning is our specialized application of the ADAS+DMS AI system. This intelligent system equipped with 2 cameras and advanced AI algorithms can monitor drivers’ behaviors and potential risks on roads. The Advanced Driving Assistant System (ADAS) actively detecting vehicles’ surroundings through the front camera to achieve driving assistance: Front Collision Warning (FCW), Headway Monitoring Warning (HMW), Lane Departure Warning(LDW), and Urban Front Collision Warning(UFCW). These warnings enable drivers to act in fast timing and protect passengers.


Due to the long-distance and long-lasting driving, accurately detecting coach driver conditions can largely reduce risks caused by subjective factors. The Driver Monitor System (DMS) can identify drivers’ working conditions by their facial characteristics. When one driver continuously operates the coach buses over 4 hours, the DMS system will alarm the driver to rest or shift to another driver. More importantly, the DMS can automatically analyze the coach drivers’ facial changes to make judgments and generate warnings. A series of warnings will be triggered by DMS when the drivers behave against safety driving, for example, eyes-closing, yawning, calling, and so on.


Review more evidence on the VSS

Furthermore, we have successfully connected these devices to our Vehicle Service System(VSS). When any drivers’ behaviors or road conditions cause the alarms, the ADAS+DMS system will automatically record the images or videos at the presetting time and sent them to the VSS. Additionally, fleet management can review all vehicle information including stream videos and geographic location to achieve their goals of optimizing fleet performance and budget spending.

What Made Howen V42 a Hot-selling Dashcam


Howen V42 dual-lens dashcam has always been the bestselling dashcam since its release one year ago, and its unparalleled features make it stand out from other competitors’ products. You might wonder what makes it such an unbeatable choice for the commercial vehicle, so here is the answer for you.

Since day one we developed the V42, we made up our mind to infuse the product with functions to resolve issues that we encountered in our decades’ experiences of fleet management solutions. After hundreds rounds of testing, the V42 eventually was released and deployed in projects worldwide. Its debut stole lightlime from similar products in the market and received countless praise from our clients. Here is why our V42 dash camera wins the competition in the market.

Multiple options to meet different needs

The image resolution on V42 is optional. You can choose either 1M pixels or 2M pixels according to the realistic needs and budget amount. A higher image resolution is not always the better, as we found that some clients actually didn’t need that extra 1M resolution. Therefore, we provide two options, one saves a large amount of money for those who are on the budget, and another provides a decent clearer view for those who have a pursuit for recording quality.

Besides image resolution, our client can also select whether they would like one or two lenses for their dashcam. Howen provides V24 dashcams that only equipped with one front(V42F-2M) or rear lens(V42R-2M). These derivative modules present a more cost-effective selection to satisfy projects with low budgets while providing the same decent image quality.

Profoundly debugged with our MDVR and VSS

One single soldier can not win the war, and it is similar to a product. Our V42 dashcam was adjusted by the Howen product and R&D team to best match with our MDVR and VSS system. Previously in the U.K., our solution integrated with V42 dashcam and MDVR successfully streamlined the surveillance management of a fleet company. Our British client selected Howen solution rather than other vendors because our dedicated customized solution passed the testing from their existing products and platform.
