Herzeliya, Israel – Jun 20, 2018 – eyeSight Technologies, a leading provider of embedded computer vision and AI solutions, has joined forces with Soling Industrial Co. (Stock Code: 002766), a Shenzhen-based Automotive Tier-1 enterprise specializing in research and development, production and sales of software and hardware for the entire industry chain,to bring together advanced driver monitoring technology to the Chinese Automotive market.
The two companies have entered a strategic cooperation aimed at utilizing eyeSight’s driver monitoring technology to optimize vehicle safety systems in real-time. The joint solution will tackle the widespread driving hazard ofblind spots, by using eyeSight’s advanced gaze detection capabilities to track the driver’s gaze trajectory in order to understand when the driver’s vision is hindered by a blind spot. With this advanced solution, safety mechanisms can be triggered in real-time to compensate for driver’s blind-spots and avoid hazardous situations on the road.
In addition, eyeSight’s sensing technology can provide a real-time assessment of the driver’s state by tracking the driver’s head position and gaze trajectory to determine if thedriver isdistracted, for example when using the phone or speaking to another passenger, allowing to trigger systems alerts accordingly.
The demand for driver monitoring in China is increasing, and the joint Soling-eyeSight Driver Monitoring solution is ideal toanswer this risingneed.The joint solution is already requested by several OEMs and is expected to be launched in China in two vehicle models by 2020, hitting the market in thousands of new vehicles every quarter.
“We are excited to collaboratewith Soling and bring to the market an advanced solution that can help save lives by tracking the driver’s state in real-time”said Gideon Shmuel, CEO of eyesight, “Our market leading edge-based computer vision technology will improve the driving experience and create a safer driving environment”
As a leading company in the automobile manufacturer solution industry, Soling’s advanced hardware products include CID, full LCD cluster and advanced driver assist systems that are sold in more than 60 countries. Soling has been successfully providing professional services and components to leading automobile manufacturers such as Mazda, GAC Group, Toyota, Fiat, among others.
