The solution is expected to enable smart vehicle interaction based on face, body, and hand gestures, and offer a facial recognition capability.

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) announced a collaboration with Jungo  to develop a Time-of-Flight (ToF) and 2D infrared- (IR) based camera solution to enable driver- and in-cabin monitoring in vehicles. The combination of ADI’s ToF technology with Jungo’s Codriver software is expected to enable the monitoring of vehicle occupants for levels of drowsiness and distraction by observing head and body position as well as eye gaze. The solution is also expected to enable smart vehicle interaction based on face, body, and hand gestures, and offer a facial recognition capability that identifies indivduals in the cabin and gives them access to features such as infotainment personalization, personalized services, and ridesharing payments.

3D ToF is a type of scannerless LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) that uses high power optical pulses in durations of nanoseconds to capture depth information (typically over short distances) from a scene of interest. ADI offers products and solutions to enhance the capabilities of 3D ToF systems, including processing, laser drivers and power management, along with development boards and software/firmware to aid in quick implementation of 3D ToF solutions.

Jungo’s CoDriver software uses deep learning, machine learning, and computer vision algorithms to detect in real time the driver state using driver facing cameras.  It also supports in-vehicle full detection technology with functions such as counting of the number of occupants, detection of seat belt wearing or detection or observing of critical medical conditions.
