Driver Monitoring

The Driver Monitoring System is a new camera-based technology  that tracks driver alertness. The system not only recognizes the driver, it also checks his or her level of vigilance in order to increase safety for passengers and other road users. The Driver Monitoring System alerts the driver when it detects signs of drowsiness or distraction. Other system applications include driver identification and select certains functions in the drive interface using the eyes. These features contribute to increased safety and more intuitive use of the new generation of driver assistance functions.

The vehicle is equipped with a camera built into the dashboard that’s focused  on the driver’s face. It allows functionalities such as:

  • Identification of the driver so the vehicle can automatically restore their preferences and settings
  • Monitoring driver fatigue and alerting them when it detects drowsiness 
  • Monitoring driver attentiveness and ensuring they keep their eyes on the road and remain aware of any dangerous situation
