Improving road safety and enhancing the mobility experience
Combines driver monitoring and cabin monitoring to understand and react to any scenario in the vehicle. Unlocking a range of possibilities for measuring the state of the driver, the cabin, and everyone in it.
Smart Eye’s Interior Sensing is powered by subsidiary Affectiva’s pioneering Emotion AI. Affectiva’s deep expertise in machine learning, and data acquisition and annotation enable us to deliver Human Insight AI that understands, supports and predicts human behavior in complex environment.
With Affectiva’s technology integrated into Smart Eye’s Interior Sensing solutions, we are able to measure complex and nuanced emotions and cognitive states – offering even deeper insight into what is happening with people in a vehicle.
On January 4, 2022, it was announced that Smart Eye’s Automotive Interior Sensing was named a CES® 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree.
The CES® Innovation Awards program is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 27 consumer technology product categories. As an honoree in the Vehicle Intelligence & Transportation category, Smart Eye’s Automotive Interior Sensing was recognized by an elite panel of industry judges for its next-level innovation, engineering, and functionality.
Smart Eye Automotive Interior Sensing unlock features and services that enhance wellness, comfort, and entertainment, while always putting safety first. Powered by Affectiva’s Emotion AI to capture nuanced emotions, reactions, and facial expressions in real time.
Recognizes registered drivers and passengers, helping adjust the features and functions of the car according to their preference.
Determines how many people are in the cabin and where they are sitting, including seat position, seat belt detection, and airbag deployment analysis.
Employs advanced DMS to catch driver drowsiness or distraction at an early stage.
Detects any pets present in moving or parked vehicles, preventing hot car deaths and identifying possible causes of driver distraction.
Identifies any children present in moving or parked vehicles, detecting possible causes of driver distraction. Also prevents vehicular heatstroke in children, which causes an average of 38 deaths each year just in the United States.
Detects bags, cell phones and other objects. Determines whether an object has been left behind.
Helps the car understand the mood, emotions, and behaviors of the people in the car. Analyzes how the people in the car are reacting to their environment and to content, such as music or video.
Detects cell phone usage, eating, drinking, smoking, applying makeup or other activities.
From preventing fatal heatstroke in children or pets left in a hot car, to adapting traditional security functionslike the activation of airbags or use of seatbelts, Interior Sensing is becoming a safety essential in new cars. Not to mention the thousands of accidents that can be prevented by detecting distraction or drowsiness in drivers. Through its complete view of what’s happening in the entire cabin, an Interior Sensing system does not only help catch distraction, but understand what could be taking the driver’s attention away from the road ahead.
By fine-tuning things like temperature, lighting, seats, and entertainment in real-time based on the physical, emotional, or cognitive changes of the people in the cabin, the car does more than get its passengers to their destination safely. In an environment customized to enhance the comfort, wellness, and entertainment of all passengers, riding in a car becomes almost as much about the journey as the destination.
