Mobotix strengthens partnership with Konica Minolta
Mobotix AG and Konica Minolta Inc. have agreed to intensify video analytics technology by participating in the FORXAI partnership programme and further strengthen synergies between the two companies.
Konica Minolta has its own advanced imaging IoT (AI) technology “FORXAI” to gain competitive advantage by combining intelligent sensor devices, imaging AI (Deep Learning) and imaging IoT platform.
As a first result, the Mobotix 7 camera platform has already implemented embedded deep learning functions (e.g. human behaviour, object recognition, etc.) as certified apps. This contributes to an advanced edge Artificial Intelligence function which opens for new market opportunities. Artificial Intelligence, AI can be used in solutions where the cameras can provide data related to peoples behaviour e.g. in areas with risk of crime but also for retail and marketing purposes etc.
In addition, Mobotix is gaining value for specific vertical markets, accelerating the company’s transformation from a traditional manufacturer to a solutions provider. A central element in this strategy is the newly established Mobotix development centre in Madrid, where a team of international specialists in the field of image processing and artificial intelligence can implement customer-specific solutions in short time.
“We are pleased about the trustful cooperation with Konica Minolta in line with our strategy. Mobotix AG has now taken a significant step to develop further as a comprehensive video solution provider with a complete range of hardware and software applications”, emphasises Thomas Lausten, CEO of Mobotix. Konica Minolta has already been a strategic investor of Mobotix since 2016.
