Brief summary

According to the WHO, around 1.3 million people die each year worldwide as a result of car accidents, almost always they are caused by human error. Around two-thirds are probably due to distracted or drowsy drivers; in the truck sector, estimates put the figure at 20 percent. Technical solutions seek to solve this problem: Computer vision-based systems that detect in real time when the driver is distracted or showing signs of drowsiness – triggering appropriate warnings.

The Viennese company emotion3D develops systems that detect the driver’s head pose, eye gaze, etc. and from this generic information derives a level of drowsiness and a level of distraction. If drowsiness or distraction is detected, a warning is triggered. Due to upcoming regulations and further functions concerning safety (e.g. improved airbag deployment) and user experience (e.g. personalization) demand for such systems is rapidly on the rise.
