Advanced Driver Assistance & Monitoring Systems
Keeping Drivers Awake, Alert, and Alive
In today’s driving domain, the car has become an entertainment, communication, and working environment. Telephone calls, GPS directions, children’s movies, – they’re all vying for driver attention, along with the demands of the road. Couple this with the increasing fatigue factor of so many motorists, and we have a dangerous situation on the road.
With the automotive industry and global regulators constantly looking for ways to reduce crashes, and with fully autonomous vehicles on the horizon, the need to leverage sensor-based technology such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to increase vehicle safety has never been greater.
Camera-based Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS) are an integral element of next-generation ADAS solutions. DMS are increasingly being used by the automotive & transportation industries to reduce distraction and drowsiness related crashes. And they must be present in all vehicles capable of SAE levels 3-4 autonomous driving – to ensure the driver is awake and alert and capable of taking back control of the vehicle after “hands-off and feet off’ modes.

Driver Monitoring System: How It Works
Camera-based Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS) provide a real-time assessment of the presence and state of the driver. 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.
The same technology is also used to check that a driver can take back control of the vehicle after ‘hands-off and feet off’ autonomous driving modes. In fact, SAE autonomous driving levels 3-4 can only be implemented with the use of an advanced driver monitoring system.
An additional benefit of a Driver Monitoring System is the ability to recognize specific drivers of a vehicle, and then adjust the in-car environment to the driver's preferences: seat position, temperature, entertainment, etc.
