Mouser releases the latest chapter of its Empowering Innovation Together program. The new episode examines the importance of driver monitoring systems for occupant presence and condition – including fatigue or distraction – to help facilitate the safety needed for Level 3 autonomous driving and beyond. Content of this fourth instalment comprises two articles, a blog, an infographic, a new episode of the Tech Between Us podcast and a Then, Now and Next video.
The driver monitoring systems topic describes the methods by which detection of the driver and occupants can mitigate adverse conditions utilising new user interfaces. Interior monitoring systems can spot signs of distracted or fatigued drivers together with occupant presence and condition to warn the driver.
“As the market begins to increase adoption of autonomous vehicles, the safety of vehicles and passengers is imperative,” says Glenn Smith, president and CEO of Mouser Electronics. “Through this instalment of EIT, we’re eager to share expert knowledge from industry leaders, helping our customers and followers understand this technology and its importance.”
In this podcast episode podcast, Modar Alaoui, founder and CEO at Eyeris, joins host Raymond Yin, director of Technical Content at Mouser, for a discussion about driver monitoring systems in vehicles, legislation around the technology and the hardware and software behind the systems.
“I’m excited to discuss with Raymond and Mouser’s listeners the exciting growth of in-vehicle vision AI,” says Alaoui. “This pioneering technology has the potential to completely transform the ways we interact with our vehicles and the ways our vehicles keep us safe.”
