Intel está colaborando con Jaguar Land Rover* y Seeing Machines*, para demostrar la nueva tecnología de detección a bordo en el panel de control del vehículo, la cual monitorea el rostro y los ojos del conductor para reducir la conducción de manera distraída y la somnolencia.
La tecnología está siendo exhibida en un vehículo prototipo Jaguar* F-Type, el cual ha sido desarrollado en colaboración con Intel en las instalaciones de I + D de Jaguar Land Rover en Portland, Oregón, y puede encontrarse en el Stand nº 7252 de Intel, Salón Central de Las Vegas Convention Center durante el CES 2015.
- Seeing Machines demonstrates its cutting-edge Driver Monitor System (DMS) in a Jaguar F-Type prototype on the Intel stand
- The system tracks the driver’s eyes and alerts the driver when they aren’t looking at the road even if they are wearing sunglasses
- DMS could be used to alert the driver to hazards earlier, or even enhance the settings of on-board safety systems, to reflect the driver’s lack of attention
Jaguar Land Rover is working with Intel and Seeing Machines to develop sensing technology that monitors the driver’s face and eyes to reduce distracted and drowsy driving.
Seeing Machines is a world leader in the development of computer vision related technologies that help machines understand people by tracking and interpreting human faces and eyes.
At the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, Seeing Machines is demonstrating its Driver Monitor System (DMS) in a Jaguar F-Type prototype developed jointly with Intel at Jaguar Land Rover’s new R&D facility in Portland, Oregon.
DMS uses attention-monitoring sensors in the dashboard to detect eye and facial movements so it can identify if the driver has become inattentive, either due to drowsiness or distraction. It is so sophisticated it can understand the state of the driver in real world conditions, including bright sunlight and if the driver is wearing glasses or sunglasses.
Nick Langdale-Smith, Vice President, Seeing Machines, said: “The algorithm we have developed for DMS has the potential to seamlessly enable a host of safety and autonomous driving features and reduce the potential for accidents caused by the driver not paying attention. DMS is unique because it is the only driver monitoring system that can achieve this even if the driver is wearing shades, or in full sunshine.”
To deliver the processing power required by the DMS system, Seeing Machines asked Intel to install hardware in the F-Type prototype based on its newest Intel Core i7 chips.
Eliott Garbus, vice president of transportation solutions at Intel said: “By choosing Intel chips to power their compute intensive technology Seeing Machines will be able to offer automakers like Jaguar Land Rover an enhanced experience for their customers in the future.”
