The Driver Monitoring System(DMS) and Advanced Driver-assistance Systems(ADAS) are powered by a compound system that consists of two high-performance customized cameras as the “video signal catchers” and the AI MDVR as the “neural center”. These camera members are well-tested and tuned to work with our complex algorithms.

By configuring a 1080p HD camera and accurate FR algorithm, the DMS can effortlessly identify human state and facial characteristics. Plus, it can execute real-time driver evaluation and initial interventions to ensure drivers are prepared to take the control of the vehicle. Likewise, the ADAS supported by a high dynamic range camera and specialized algorithm transform road condition into driver alert, enabling drivers to take proactive actions.

 

Built to be more intelligent and stable

Besides the huge progression we made on hardware, we also upgraded the Mobile DVR system to dual-firmware to increase the systemative stability. The brand new firmware supports Smart H.265 video compression technology that is estimated to save up to 80% of storage room and data cost compared with the H.264.

Additionally, the new built-in six-axis sensor has a higher accuracy for displacement detection for harsh acceleration, harsh break, harsh cornering. What it means to the vehicle industry is a more comprehensive evaluation of driver KPI and promote safer drivers’ behaviors.

Furthermore, we made the AI MDVR smarter by developing the self-adapting functions for video mode and camera configuration. With these functions, fleet companies are no longer need to manually adjust camera resolution and switch from PAL mode to NTSC mode, saving time and setup processes in installation.

What Made Howen V42 a Hot-selling Dashcam

V42-dual-lens-dash-camera

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.

  • This economical MDVR supports 4 channels 720p cameras that meet most of the needs of our clients’ trucks.
  • The embedded 1TB HDD is designed with a specialized solid structure to mitigate vibration and protect data.
  • Built-in 4G, Wifi, and GPS modules ensure data transfer without any hinders.
  •  The intelligent G-sensor detects moments of the truck and alarms any unnormal positional changes.
  • Affluent connection ports enable transferring more data from vehicle peripherals to MDVR and VSS.

Other than the MDVR, we carefully chose a dome camera(Hero-C62S0V30-1MR) installed inside the cabin and 3 rear cameras (Hero-C60S0V26-1MR)  respectively installed beside and behind the truck. These wide-angle and water-resistant cameras provide a complete high-resolution view of the surrounding. More importantly, they are tuned by our engineers to match with our MDVR. Truck drivers can view the circumstances round through the monitor and make smart decisions.

Vehicle Service System(VSS) for more possibilities

On the platform side, we provided our self-developed Vehicle Service System (VSS). The multi-functional platform received data from Howen MDVR and renders our clients a management system that they can monitor vehicles in real-time anywhere by installing our dedicated mobile APP and software. Furthermore, the VSS platform is able to locate trucks and record the routes. With this function, our clients can optimize the transporting route and cut down insufficient costs.
