MAHWAH, NJ--(Marketwired - May 15, 2014) - InterCore, Inc. (OTCQB: ICOR) announced that it has completed an initial deployment of its ADS™ System as an Apple iPhone app to the first group of commercial users in the Canadian trucking industry. This deployment, involving approximately 5,000 users, is a final demonstration step before commencing full commercial implementation, which could begin in early June with a potential ramp-up to 80,000 or more users by year-end.
As previously disclosed, the ADS™ System utilizes biometric monitoring of 524 points on the head of the operator of a vehicle to detect and signal the operator's impending loss of alertness sufficiently in advance -- generally 45 minutes to two hours before the onset of sleep -- to enable appropriate action to be taken, well before the operator becomes a hazard to himself and others. In applications such as truck, bus, or train operations, the ADS™ System would provide visual and audible alerts of the operator's impending loss of alertness to both the operator and the dispatch control center.
"The past several months have been spent strengthening the security of ADS™ System after simulations jointly performed by Apple and our technical staff suggested that the original encryption module might become a performance limitation when more than one million ADS™ System apps were running simultaneously. Rather than release the product with the knowledge that a future release would be required shortly, we decided to upgrade the encryption module immediately. While this resulted in a delay in the deployment date, we felt strongly that it was the correct approach for our customers and our product, as is currently being demonstrated in the deployment to 5,000 commercial users," said James F. Groelinger, Chief Executive Officer of InterCore. Mr. Groelinger continued: "In addition to the commercial application, we plan to release the consumer version of the iPhone ADS™ System app in the fall, while simultaneously developing an Android version for commercial and consumer customers. We are anxious to get this valuable product into the market, where we are confident that it will reduce accidents with a commensurate reduction in property loss, personal injuries, and loss of life."
