>> The company’s groundbreaking Automotive Interior Sensing solution combines driver monitoring and cabin monitoring to improve road safety and mobility experiences.

Gothenburg, Sweden – Smart Eye, the global leader in Human Insight AI, today announced that it has been named a CES® 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree for Smart Eye Automotive Interior Sensing.

Smart Eye Automotive Interior Sensing combines the company’s industry-leading driver monitoring system (DMS) with cabin monitoring to provide deep, human-centric insight into what is happening inside a vehicle. The system understands the state of the driver, the cabin and the backseat passengers, by detecting eye gaze, head movement, body posture, occupancy, activities, children, pets and objects. Powered by Affectiva’s Emotion AI, it also captures nuanced emotions, reactions and facial expressions. In turn, Smart Eye enables OEMs and Tier 1s to build next generation vehicles that improve road safety by understanding dangerous driving behavior, and unlock features and services that enhance wellness, comfort and entertainment.

Smart Eye Automotive Interior Sensing is a multi-modal solution built with computer vision, machine learning and massive amounts of real-world automotive data. With a flexible camera position using the latest optical RGB and IR sensors, the system runs in real time on low-power embedded systems.

“We’re so excited to receive this recognition of our work in Interior Sensing,” said Martin Krantz, Founder and CEO of Smart Eye. “For years, Smart Eye has held a definitive leadership position in the driver monitoring system (DMS) market. Now, we are expanding our view beyond just the driver, to monitor the full cabin, to understand what is happening inside a vehicle. The industry is rapidly adopting these multi-modal Interior Sensing solutions, in response to evolving requirements for advanced safety features and next-generation mobility experiences. We’re proud to be at the forefront of this movement.”

The CES Innovation Awards program is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 27 consumer technology product categories. Those with the highest rating receive the “Best of Innovation” distinction. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design. This year’s CES Innovation Awards program received a record-high number of submissions, with 1,800 companies entering.

Smart Eye will participate in Digital CES and will host remote, live technology demos of its latest and greatest automotive technology for select clients and partners during the week of CES and beyond.
