eyeSight Technologies, an industry leader in embedded computer vision and AI solutions, has partnered up with Soling Industrial Co., a Shenzhen-based AutomotiveTier-1 enterprise, to bring advanced driver monitoring technology to the Chinese Auto market.
A strategic cooperation entered by the two companies is aimed at using eyeSight’s driver monitoring technology to optimize vehicle safety in real-time. The joint forces will confront the common driving hazard of blind spots. It will try to track the driver’s gaze trajectory by utilizing eyeSight’s advanced gaze detection capabilities in order to understand when the driver’s vision is hindered by a blind spot. This advanced solution will trigger safety mechanisms in real-time to compensate for driver’s blind-spots and avoid hazardous situations on the road.
Additionally, eyeSight’s sensing technology will tackle the driver’s head position and gaze trajectory to get a real-time evaluation of the driver’s state which will help to determine if the driver is distracted, for example when speaking to a passenger or using the phone.
China is experiencing a high demand for driver monitoring systems. The Soling-eyeSight partnership solution, requested by several Chinese OEMs, is expected to be launched in the country in two vehicle models by 2020, and hit the market in thousands of new cars each quarter.
“We are excited to collaborate with Soling and bring to the market an advanced solution that can help save lives by tracking the driver’s state in real-time,” said eyesight CEO Gideon Shmuel. “Our market leading edge-based computer vision technology will improve the driving experience and create a safer driving environment.”
Soling Industrial Co. was founded in 1997. This Shenzen-based company is a well-known player in the Chinese automotive industry. The company specializes in research and development, production, and sales of software and hardware for the entire automobile industry chain. Soling’s advanced hardware products including CID, full LCD cluster and advanced driver assist systems are sold in more than 60 countries worldwide.
