Uniti and Smart Eye is teaming up for testing eye tracking features in new electric vehicle
Today the new electric car from Uniti will be shown to the world media. Just like the latest iPhone the Uniti car will introduce Face ID for the ability to read the drivers face and understand the driver - Uniti and Smart Eye are teaming up with the aim to provide the best solution for the driver. Smart Eye is exhibiting the latest in-car tech at Uniti’s launch event today in Landskrona.
Smart Eye’s Driver Monitoring technology and Smart AI solution provides the sensors and technology which supports the introduction of Head up Display with Augmented reality functions, convenience features based on Face ID and safety applications that reads the Driver state and adapts the experience accordingly. The advanced features take advantage of the immense processing power of the SoC, provided by NVIDIA. Smart AI is a platform that supports regular driver monitoring algorithms but also Convolutional Neural Networks aiming at understanding the human on a deep level developed by Smart Eye’s newly formed AI team. Face ID features will make the journey from providing automatic smileys based on facial expression to an exciting near future where the car of the future will have a profound understanding of the driver state, emotions and intentions, for the purpose of improving driver safety and the experience of driving a car.
Uniti’s choice of Smart Eye as a partner for developing Driver Monitoring and Smart AI is based on a shared vision of the importance of Driver Interaction for the car of tomorrow. Kristoffer Syversen, Head of Software and Electronics at Uniti states: “Driver Interaction based on the Drivers emotions and intentions is a central aspect of the Vehicle we are launching. Our car of the future will be able to adapt the level of information, the feedback and the complete experience based on the driver’s current state of mind. Our holistic sustainability vision includes the aspect of many drivers sharing a car, an aspect that can be supported by Face ID, as the determination of the identity of the driver will help the vehicle adapt the settings seamlessly to the different users. Smart Eye is a great partner for us in exploring the opportunities of the technology we need, today and tomorrow.”
