Drivers of modern cars are increasingly often distracted by the car´s
multimedia system. Measuring the attention and eye movements of the
driver is therefore in the focus of car manufacturers who wish to
increase safety by new security systems for driver assistance.
With our partners SMI and LIAMIS we have developed a prototype system
that is capable of measuring the state of fatigue and attention of a
driver. The system is based on a video camera that looks at the driver
and a special infrared illumination. In addition to the features
covered by WakeUp, InSight can also determine the drivers gaze
direction and can thus be used to monitor his focus of attention.
