Biometrics technology realizing safe and secure transportation

DMS featuring contactless heart-rate sensing technology incorporating near-infrared camera. Face-tracking technology continuously tracks driver's face movements. Body surface temperature is measured with a sensor.

Analysis of heart rate and body temperature enables system to diagnose driver conditions such as fatigue, drowsiness, sudden sickness, etc.

Driver Monitoring System

Face-tracking technology determines eyes, nose and mouth positions using camera images

Innovative human-machine interface facilitates communication both inside and outside vehicle

Speech-separation technology distinguishes voice commands from other verbal conversation in the vehicle, recognizing who utters voice commands and when based on camera images and audio signals3.

Wide crossed-image display combines floating 3D images and holographic visual effects while a ring-shaped knob on a display simplifies operations using various via GUIs. Both help realize intuitive operations for enhanced user experiences.
