Analog Devices is collaborating with Jungo to develop a ToF and 2D IR-based camera solution to allow driver- and in-cabin monitoring in vehicles. The combination of their ToF technology with Jungo’s Co-driver software is expected to facilitate the monitoring of vehicle occupants for levels of drowsiness and distraction by watching head and body position as well as eye gaze. The solution is also expected to allow smart vehicle interaction based on face, body, and hand gestures, and provide a facial recognition ability identifying individuals in the cabin and provides them access to features including infotainment personalisation, personalised services, and ridesharing payments.
“The collaboration between ADI and Jungo opens the door to new and innovative augmented reality applications beyond today’s gesture control,” said Vlad Bulavsky, product line director, Automotive Connectivity and Sensing, Analog Devices. “We believe our work together can bring cabin sensing with ToF-based driver- and occupant monitoring to the next level and improve vehicle safety.”
“Jungo’s Co-driver monitoring algorithms are used by original equipment manufacturers to keep their drivers and passengers safe and develop innovative use cases that understand an occupant’s state while in the vehicle,” said Ophir Herbst, CEO, Jungo Ltd. “We are delighted to collaborate with Analog Devices to make vehicles smarter and enable OEMs to comply with regulations and innovate in their next-generation vehicles by using our algorithms and ADI’s leading ToF technology.”
