Hyundai Mobis has developed Driver State Warning (DSW) system, which accurately analyzes the driver’s facial biometric data and warns about careless driving situations. The company will supply it to main mid/full sized commercial vehicles for the first time in Korea as of 2021.
Existing driver state warning systems, which have been applied on a limited basis to some premium sedans and commercial vehicles, could only recognize the direction of the driver’s face and the opened or closed state of their eyes.
The new DSW system developed by Hyundai Mobis claims to offer a new level of careless driving detection accuracy through driver identification based on facial feature points such as eyes, nose, mouth and ears as well as eye tracking through pupil recognition.
Its driver identification feature supports registration of multiple drivers. With this new system, Hyundai Mobis is considering connecting it with personalization features such as automatic adjustment of seats and mirrors.
The new system combines driver state data captured from an indoor camera with chassis data such as speed, transmission and handling for analysis, securing a higher level of reliability.
The system recognizes the driver’s face with an infrared camera installed in the vehicle and detects careless driving caused by drowsy driving, distraction and fatigue. To prevent traffic accidents, the system detects lane departure and lane crossing caused by careless driving and calls the driver’s attention with cluster indication, alarm sound and vibration.
