Vire Labs

VIRE LABS Oy is an innovative Finnish hardware and software development company with specialized expertise in embedded systems and graphics programming that uses AI.

VIREBOX.AI is a development platform for digitizing human, material, and service flows. It allows you to identify deviations, streamline processes, and make future predictions.

The world’s first real-time passenger information system It’s about real-time passenger information. When leaving a stop, we are immediately informed of how many passengers are in each part of the tram. We can categorize the passengers with the accuracy of human, dog, bike, and stroller. In addition, we get a ‘stop flow’ in almost real time for all trams, which means we can see how the entire tram traffic goes. The calculation of passenger capacity is carried out with edge computing, in this case on the tram. Video image never leaves the tram. Vire Labs Virebox.AI combines sensor information collected from the tram with the data from the camera and initiates edge computing. As a result of the computing, only the number of passengers and identified objects in each car is transmitted to the cloud for analysis. “If a system that meets GDPR regulations is built in Finland, it can also be easily deployed on the international market.
