15-08-2022 | Mouser Electronics | Automotive & Transport

Mouser has published the newest chapter of its Empowering Innovation Together program. This episode examines the importance of driver monitoring systems for occupant presence and condition, such as fatigue or distraction, to aid in fostering the safety needed for Level 3 autonomous driving and beyond. Content for this fourth instalment comprises two articles, an infographic, a blog, a new episode of the Tech Between Us podcast and a Then, Now and Next video.

The driver monitoring systems topic describes the methods by which detection of the driver and occupants can mitigate unfavourable conditions utilising new user interfaces. Interior monitoring systems can detect indications of distracted or fatigued drivers together with occupant presence and condition to alert the driver.

“As the market begins to increase adoption of autonomous vehicles, the safety of vehicles and passengers is imperative,” says Glenn Smith, president and CEO of Mouser Electronics. “Through this instalment of EIT, we’re eager to share expert knowledge from industry leaders, helping our customers and followers understand this technology and its importance.”

In the latest podcast episode, Modar Alaoui, founder and CEO at Eyeris, joins host Raymond Yin, director of Technical Content at Mouser Electronics, for a conversation about driver monitoring systems in vehicles, legislation around the technology and the hardware and software behind the systems.

“I’m excited to discuss with Raymond and Mouser’s listeners the exciting growth of in-vehicle vision AI,” says Alaoui. “This pioneering technology has the potential to completely transform the ways we interact with our vehicles and the ways our vehicles keep us safe.”

The new instalment is sponsored by Analog Devices, Infineon Technologies, Molex, NXP Semiconductors, onsemi and TE Connectivity.
