"Jabil's partnership with eyeSight Technologies supports automakers
working to reduce accidents involving driver distraction," said
"For years, eyeSight has been living and breathing computer vision and
machine learning solutions, which are already deployed in millions of
devices worldwide," said
The combined hardware and software system operates with sub-pixel accuracy enabling higher-resolution driver monitoring. The accuracy of the camera modules, together with intelligent software, allows the system to be smaller, resulting in reduced weight and footprint.
The scalable system, which can be integrated into existing cockpit electronics, uses time-of-flight and infrared capabilities to enable:
- Driver identification - facial recognition, gender and age
- Driver attentiveness - head pose, posture, eyelid tracking and mood
- Driver distraction - iris tracking, gaze tracking
- Gesture control - touch-free control of navigation, infotainment, HVAC, etc.
