Intelligent safety features detecting driver state and behavior
The world’s leading Driver Monitoring System software, selected by 15 OEMs for 102 car models. For safe, sustainable transportation and better mobility experiences.
Smart Eye’s Driver Monitoring System software has been installed in more than 1,000,000 cars on roads globally – saving lives every day. Powering more vehicles on the road with these critical safety systems than any other vendor, Smart Eye has established itself as a definitive market leader.
The new generation of DMS can identify all types of people and objects, enabling greater customization of the car’s interior systems and features. From seats that automatically adjust to a registered user to gaze-activated windshield wipers, to infotainment systems that can sense the driver’s mood and emotions.
For over two decades, Smart Eye has been at the leading edge of this development by delivering DMS technology to the automotive industry. Our AI-powered, multimodal software is at the heart of Driver Monitoring Systems in today’s cars – for safer and better mobility experiences.
Smart Eye’s AI-based DMS technology enables a wide variety of features for improved road safety and driver convenience. Powered by Affectiva’s Emotion AI to capture nuanced emotions, reactions, and facial expressions in real time.
Identifies the driver to adjust the features of the car and secure that the vehicle is driven by certified drivers.
Tracks the driver’s eye, head, and face movements to detect distraction and identify even the earliest signs of fatigue – making sure that focus stays on the road ahead.
Detects behavior that can be distracting, like eating, drinking, smoking or mobile phone use.
Identifies objects present in the vehicle and how the driver is interacting with them.
Detects the activities the driver is engaged in – including whether they are focused on driving or not.
Tracks how the driver is sitting, moving, or interacting with objects or interfaces of the vehicle.
Affectiva’s Emotion AI analyzes the driver’s facial expressions to help the car understand their mood, emotions, and behaviors.
Identifies signs of unconsciousness or other impairments by analyzing the driver’s body key points and eye, head, and face movements.
When developing automotive safety systems, there is no room for error or compromise. That’s why we make sure to develop our ASIL quality software in close collaboration with the automotive industry, according to automotive SPICE processes.
Our DMS software is flexible and hardware-agnostic – allowing for application in any system, in any vehicle. This enables us to offer the best performance on the smallest CPU footprint on the market, while enabling smooth adaption to the varying needs of our customers.
In the last decade, driver monitoring systems have gone from an exclusive technology only found in premium cars, to an essential safety feature for detecting driver distraction and drowsiness. All over the world, legislators and influential organizations are recognizing the importance of driver monitoring systems for increasing road safety.
The US, the EU and China are all in different stages of implementing regulations that require the use of driver monitoring systems for preventing driver distraction and drowsiness. These initiatives have added even greater urgency to the installation of DMS in all new passenger vehicles put on the road.
Thanks to Euro NCAP, Driver Monitoring will practically be a requirement for any new car model launched on the European market by 2023.
But what exactly is Euro NCAP? How will their next assessment protocol affect the construction of practically every new car model put on our roads? And – what does it take for a car model to receive a sought-after five-star rating? Get the answers in our e-Book.
Smart Eye is leading the way for multimodal, AI-based technology for interior vehicle environments. Trusted by 15 of the world’s largest car manufacturers, including BMW, Geely and Polestar, we are the number one provider of Driver Monitoring and Interior Sensing system software to the automotive industry.
Our automotive solutions are powered by Smart Eye company Affectiva, contributing their pioneering Emotion AI and deep expertise in machine learning and data acquisition. In Sweden, the US, Egypt, Denmark, Germany, Japan and China, our rapidly growing team keep exploring new ways of enhancing and elevating an already ground-breaking technology.
By combining Driver Monitoring with Cabin Monitoring, we expand the intelligence to the entire car interior and the people in it. This emerging technology is known as
Interior Sensing and is the next step towards improving safety for all road users while providing enhanced wellness, comfort, and entertainment in tomorrow’s vehicles.
