Smart Eye Driver Monitoring and Interior-Vehicle Sensing solutions coupled with NXP’s powerful i.MX 8 and 8X applications processor families move-the-needle in advanced Driver Monitoring capabilities for next generation vehicles. 

Smart Eye’s technology for head and eye tracking will be showcased together with NXP’s i.MX 8 and 8X application processor families at CES Las Vegas (see location below). 

Smart Eye’s AI-powered driver monitoring eye tracking technology enables safety applications such as drowsiness and inattention detection coupled with in-car Face ID for unparalleled safety and reliability. Utilizing advanced IR-based cameras, the system is inherently spoof-resistant.  These advanced features take advantage of the performance and scalability of the i.MX 8 and 8X families of automotive qualified applications processors, working seamlessly with the advanced SafeAssure® capabilities of the i.MX 8 family, enabling customers to deploy advanced Driver Monitoring capabilities across a wide range of vehicle types.

 “Smart Eye and NXP has a long history of excellent collaboration and at CES we are proud to showcase the next generation of platform-independent eye tracking software for the automotive industry. The next generation of AI-powered driver monitoring technology and interior sensing is here and not going away” says Smart Eye CEO Martin Krantz.

Smart Eye’s Driver monitoring and interior-vehicle sensing technologies form a key part of the i.MX 8 and 8X Driver Experience Domain showcases at CES.  The showcase is anchored on NXP’s highest performance i.MX 8 family processor, the i.MX 8QuadMax, as part of a future-concept automotive dashboard which includes Virtualized Linux and Android running 3D-enabled Cluster, Infotainment and Vehicle Control systems, NXP’s car audio solutions and integrated Amazon Alexa voice control. The Dashboard integrates three never before seen automotive grade LCDs with variable geometry, showcasing what the future of Automotive Driver Experience’s will look like.

“i.MX 8 and 8X families are scalable automotive platforms which can run a variety of Interior-Vehicle sensing technologies. With Smart Eye's Driver Monitoring technology, users will experience optimal safety critical applications integrated with full, multi-screen and voice enabled eCockpit experiences,” said Ron Martino, Vice President, i.MX Applications Processor Product Line at NXP.
