Deaths and accidents in traffic are largely caused by the person behind the wheel. For over two decades, the engineers at Smart Eye have provided car manufacturers around the world with high-quality software systems to make driving safer. The company's Driver Monitoring System (DMS) is at the forefront when it comes to innovative technology solutions designed to reduce the number of traffic accidents. Smart Eyes product AIS is the result of intelligent software integrated into a customizable, flexible, and robust hardware. The product is described as "a high-quality safety system that leaves nothing to chance".
According to figures from the World Health Organization (WHO), between 20 and 50 million people are injured in traffic each year, of which approximately 1.3 million dies. The human factor is a major contributor to these figures, and as cars themselves become safer, methods aimed at the person behind the wheel are playing an increasing role in reducing the number of accidents and deaths.
Increased road safety through available technology
Smart Eye was founded in 1999 by current CEO Martin Krantz and his father Mats Krantz based on the dream of using eye tracking technology (eye tracking) as a functional aid. Eye tracking is a sensor technology that, through cameras and infrared light, identifies eye movement and gaze direction, which in turn are transformed into information. Based on the eye tracking system, Smart Eye has developed a multimodal AI system with the ability to detect and analyze preparatory behavior - a Driver Monitoring System (DMS).
Reads risk behaviors and prevents accidents
Using eye tracking and behavioral analysis, Smart Eyes' DMS system detects trends that indicate deviant or risky behavior. High-risk factors such as fatigue or if the driver is distracted are noted by the system, which then warns the driver. Unlike existing retroactive or passive safety systems such as seat belts or airbags, the Smart Eyes AIS system has the ability to prevent accidents. The system's innovative functions make it possible to perceive, identify and prevent dangerous situations in traffic, and AI technology gets to know the driver over time and integrates the driver's behavior into the safety system.
The possibilities of the technology
- Understanding of human behavior and interaction with the vehicle
- Intuitive interaction between driver and technology
- Increased safety in a proactive and sustainable way with the driver at the center
- Wireless computer and system interaction
