Tell us a bit about your business? When were you founded, where are you based and how many people do you employ?
Founded in September 2009, Exeros Technologies envisions a world in which road safety is a given for all road users and is actively working to reduce the risks associated with driving.
Exeros initially focused on the private hire market becoming the first company to be approved by TfL to fit CCTV systems in London’s black cabs in October 2010.
Exeros Technologies quickly moved on to earn a place in the industry as a pioneer of CCTV systems for fleets and has subsequently partnered with some of the largest fleets in the UK.
In July 2017 Exeros moved into new premises based in Royal Arsenal, London with further expansion scheduled in 2020.
What does the business do?
Exeros Technologies is a pioneer in providing bespoke smart camera systems and software solutions to protect fleet vehicles, assets, and people, supporting fleet operators in mitigating risk and driving performance improvements – whatever the size or nature of the fleet.
To date, Exeros have installed over 15,000 CCTV systems into a variety of vehicles including heavy construction, fleet operators, highways agencies, blue-light emergency services, light commercial vehicles, taxis and private, bus operators to name but a few.
In addition to the flagship multi-camera CCTV system the Exeros solution approach to fleet safety today includes reactive blind spot elimination offerings such as TrackEye Nano, our secure video encrypted dash mounted camera and SkyEye for virtual 360 top down all around the vehicle view.
Proactive driver assistance and protection comes from our forward facing ADAS camera with driver monitoring and fatigue detection and body-worn cameras suitable for when the driver leaves the vehicle.
Early 2018, Exeros discovered that the top ten worst pileups in the world were caused by fog. Recognising that vehicle technology was moving towards connected autonomous vehicles (CAV), machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), Exeros launched SeeTrue in February 2019 to address this issue.
SeeTrue is a visual software enhancement algorithm, that allows any camera-based product to significantly improve vision in real-time by handling live video and displaying the enhanced image in inclement weather such as fog, haze, rain, mist, snow etc.
How is business? What’s the outlook for the year ahead?
Business is very good and pleased to say buoyant.
Investment, growth and development in people, processes and training will continue as will further improvements in equipment with manufacturing and operations. Recruitment will see us look to employ in-house hardware and software engineers plus technical support will be boosted.
Our latest software development launched in 2020 has seen Exeros move into the area of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) whilst utilising the power of SeeTrue. Object recognition and classification can now be added to SeeTrue to display items such as vehicle type, building, roadside furniture, animals and woodland which can provide invaluable data to our clients.
As we move through 2020, we will continue our work with neural networks for vehicle counting, passenger counting, object tracking, smart cities for car parking, mobility as a service, automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) plus moving into other markets sectors including aviation, security & defence, ports and marine and medical, while expanding our international business relationships.
We will continue to strengthen our ties with SMMT, Department for Transport, Department for International Trade, Transport for London, Connected Places Catapult plus others.
What are the big issues or technological advances that fill you with positivity?
The automotive industry is fast moving towards connected autonomous vehicles and predictive vehicle technology. Vehicles are becoming large smart devices with advanced emergency braking capabilities, mapping technology for autonomous driving, better fuel efficiency and cars as a service as a form of transportation.
However, safety remains the biggest concern, and this is where Exeros Technologies can truly play its part. As an agile company, continuously innovating and pushing technology boundaries, and with an extensive bank of invaluable data, we are excited to work with global market-leaders to continue developing disruptive safety technology to further advance vehicle and driver safety, in this ever-evolving reality.
As the vehicle technology market is currently going through its greatest technology change seen in decades, Exeros has plans to be at the forefront.
