  1. 1)Biometrics technology realizing safe and secure transportation
    • DMS*1 featuring contactless heart-rate sensing technology incorporating near-infrared camera. Face-tracking technology*2 continuously tracks driver's face movements. Body surface temperature is measured with a sensor.
    • Analysis of heart rate and body temperature enables system to diagnose driver conditions such as fatigue, drowsiness, sudden sickness, etc.
    1. *1Driver Monitoring System
    2. *2Face-tracking technology determines eyes, nose and mouth positions using camera images
  2. 2)Innovative human-machine interface facilitates communication both inside and outside vehicle
    • Speech-separation technology distinguishes voice commands from other verbal conversation in the vehicle, recognizing who utters voice commands and when based on camera images and audio signals*3.
    • Wide crossed-image display combines floating 3D images and holographic visual effects while a ring-shaped knob on a display simplifies operations using various via GUIs. Both help realize intuitive operations for enhanced user experiences.
