Imagine going for a first drive in your brand-new car. Image the smell of new leather seats, the roaring engine and that fine-tuned dashboard. But that’s not all, your car is also equipped with artificial intelligence (AI). Not only programmed to recognize your voice or taste in music but to make sure you stay alert on the road. Through precise eye tracking it will know if you’re tired, drowsy or simply not paying attention to the road ahead of you. And it will warn you, keeping you safe, as your car is equipped with Smart Eye technology.
“We’re strong advocates of using the latest scientific advances within AI, computer vision, and advanced hardware to help save lives on the road. Thus, it’s great to see yet two more cars being launched with our eye-tracking technology among its enhanced active safety features,” says Martin Krantz, CEO of Smart Eye.
Smart Eye is prevented from disclosing the name of the manufacturer at this time.
Smart Eye’s driver monitoring technology has received a total of 17 auto industry design wins so far, including 13 for the company’s second-generation eye‐tracking technology, which will be included in all car models of a new platform.
The new launches and the multiple design wins firmly establish Smart Eye’s position as the industry-leading developer of driver monitoring technology. Further international procurements are currently ongoing, with various global vehicle manufacturers establishing supplier relationships for both the first- and second-generation driver monitoring systems. Smart Eye is well‐positioned to achieve further successes in these processes.
