Eye-Tracking Car Tech Will Help Drivers Remain Focused
Cars will soon be able to keep you from falling asleep behind the wheel
While Google is certain of the future with driverless vehicles, a trend of improving the driver is emerging. Soon, cars will come with a built-in system that will keep an eye out for a dozy driver.
Seeing Machines, a company based in the Australian capital of Canberra, has created a compact system of monitoring the driver. Using infrared lights and built-in cameras, the devices capture images and extracts relevant information from the photos. At 60 frames per second, an on-board program will calculate your head’s position and where your eyes are looking.
