In-Cabin Sensing Systems

As I mentioned in the last post featuring the data from Pitchbook, most of the investment activity: deal count and capital raised is in Mobility as a Service (MaaS) or Transportation as a Service (TaaS) use cases. The focus is certainly oriented toward figuring our the situational/contextual awareness of the vehicle as it relates to its environment.

What about the passenger? How do we utilize all the great advances in AI toward the understanding the situational/contextual awareness of the passenger to the vehicle? Where is In-Cabin sensing? Daimler's recently introduced the MBUX Interior Assistant powered by Xilinx silicon at CES 2019. For a demonstration of the system watch this video. This a great example of what advances will be coming for In-Cabin AI Sensing.

Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.

AV is mostly centered on the Vehicle as it relates to the environment. But what has been overlooked is the changes that sensors can bring to In-Cabin sensing. This will be the focus of talks by Veoneer, Eyeris and STMicroelectronics at the Autonomous Vehicle Sensors Conference (AVSC) co-located with Sensors Expo & Conference 2019.
