“Jabil’s partnership with eyeSight Technologies supports automakers working to reduce accidents involving driver distraction,” said Lisa Bahash, SVP, Jabil Automotive Group. “The accuracy, intelligence and efficiency of the system we’re developing will enable automakers to implement in-car sensing systems across all vehicle types.”
“For years, eyeSight has been living and breathing computer vision and machine learning solutions, which are already deployed in millions of devices worldwide,” said Gideon Shmuel, CEO of eyeSight. “Most recently, eyeSight has been very focused on the in-car automotive market, and our partnership with Jabil will expand our joint solution to enhance the driver experience by offering tangible benefits like driver monitoring and personalization.”
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.
