Why driver monitoring?

Why driver monitoring?

Safer roads

Every year more than 1.35 million people are killed in road accidents, and 90 % of these result from human error, often drowsiness or distraction. Technology that mitigates the human factor is going to be critical in achieving Vision Zero; the end of road traffic deaths.​

New legislation

A political consensus is growing. All new cars in the EU will require a camera-based DMS by the year 2026, meaning manufacturers need to begin incorporating this software into their systems now. A DMS is no longer a luxury feature; it’s the law. ​

Driving comfort

Driving shouldn’t be a stressful experience, and when drivers feel safe, it isn’t. With our DMS analyzing attention, distraction, and drowsiness, drivers feel that extra layer of protection. The system is subtle, unobtrusive, and only steps in when needed, providing a calm and pleasant environment for the driver and passengers.​

Our DMS solution

Our DMS Solution

Tobii DMS leverages core signals to understand and monitor the cognitive state of the driver, including distraction, drowsiness, and other potentially dangerous behaviors. This allows OEMs and Tier 1s to create warnings and alerts that react to the maximum thresholds for driver states and data from other sensors, like the speedometer. With a deep-learning algorithm built on comprehensive population coverage, Tobii DMS works for any driver, in any situation.

Subtle and unobtrusive

A driver monitoring system needs to work for the driver. That’s why we prioritize an unobtrusive setup that doesn’t affect the driver’s natural behavior, ensuring focus behind the wheel. The accuracy of Tobii DMS also eliminates false positives, so you only notice it when it’s needed.
