Bosch AI system will be able to monitor the driver and passengers in the vehicle
One of the system components is a camera integrated into the steering wheel. It continuously monitors the driver’s behavior and condition. In particular, the head position, blink frequency, etc. are monitored.
The data obtained are processed using artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms. If the complex comes to the conclusion that the motorist is tired or falling asleep, an alarm will be sounded. Depending on the settings, the system will be able to use on-board electronics to reduce the speed or, to take the vehicle to the curb for a complete stop.
Another camera will be placed in the area of the interior rearview mirror. It will monitor the behavior of all passengers. The system will be able to issue a warning if any of the passengers do not wear their seatbelts or take a position that will prevent the airbags from protecting the person in the event of an accident.
The new system will be in demand, including in self-managed vehicles. It will allow the car to understand whether the motorist is ready to take control of the vehicle at any given time or whether he or she has become overly involved in his or her own business.
In the commercial market, a new Bosch AI solution may appear in 2022.
