Interior Camera

Interior Camera

To understand what the driver exactly needs is crucial to offer a real Holistic Human-Machine Interface experience. Therefore our systems gather the current condition of drivers. Our technology enables gaze target recognition, face recognition or drowsiness classification as well as the thermal comfort. That will be a base for a natural interaction and joy of use.
