GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN, October 1, 2021 – Smart Eye announces a new design win with a global Japanese car manufacturer. The new order, for one new car model on an existing platform, has an estimated revenue of SEK 25 million, based on forecasts of the estimated product life cycle.
Smart Eye, the world’s leading developer of AI-powered Driver Monitoring System (DMS) software, has received a new order from an existing customer. The new car model is estimated to go into production by the end of 2022.
The customer is a major, global car manufacturer headquartered in Japan. The new order extends Smart Eye’s technology to yet another of the customer’s car models, in addition to the nine previously communicated design wins with this OEM. The estimated revenue for the new design win SEK 25 million, based on product life cycle volume projections.
For this model, the OEM has changed the standard position of the system’s camera. Smart Eye’s DMS solution is designed for flexibility in order to accommodate new camera placements. This is expected to give Smart Eye a competitive advantage as an increasing number of car manufacturers are requesting alternative camera placements in their cars.
“This new order further confirms our ability to provide our customers with outstanding DMS technology. As we keep delivering on our existing contracts, we look forward to receiving even more design wins on this and other previously won platforms”, said Martin Krantz, CEO and founder of Smart Eye.
Smart Eye has now received a total of 89 design wins from 13 OEMs. The combined estimated lifetime value from current design wins is now larger than SEK 2,275 million. Estimated value over the product lifecycle from possible additional design wins with the car manufacturers on existing platforms is now SEK 3,975 million.
