NVISO achieves another milestone with Interior Monitoring System running on Neuromorphic computing

16th May, 2022

We have reached another important milestone after showcasing the world’s first commercial grade emotion recognition AI App designed for neuromorphic processing, this technology has been integrated into our test vehicle and is now accelerating automotive interior monitoring systems addressing both driver and occupant monitoring systems. DMS being a key feature expected to become a standard feature in new cars as a result of regulatory and rating agency requirements Euro NCAP 2025 Roadmap. Advanced driver monitoring systems (DMS) can detect distracted and drowsy drivers by accurately measuring eye and head position, attention, and fatigue. The DMS alerts the driver and integrated safety systems upon detection of a risk such as drowsiness or distraction. This feedback enables the driver and vehicle to take action before safety is compromised. While in occupant monitoring systems, it is not only the driver who is the focus of attention. The camera is positioned in such a way that all seats are in its field of vision. The system can detect the presence of any other occupant, front passengers, and can thus deactivate the airbag if, for instance, a child safety seat is present. IMS uses machine learning to enable in-vehicle systems to sense their occupants’ emotional states and gestures to provide personalized experiences in the transition to automated driving.
