Smart Eye: Produkt inom driver monitoring lanseras i Shanghai 11-13 juni

Pressmeddelandet nedan finns endast tillgängligt på engelska. Smart AI
launch for China Commercial Vehicle DMS market.

Road accidents continue to take lives. Each day more than 3.000
persons die and more than 100.000 are injured worldwide. United
Nations have made it a primary objective to reduce the number of
deaths and injuries, coupled to the transportation system that is
such an important and integral part of a modern economy. Safe and
sustainable transport of people and goods is a prerequisite for
positive global development.

The solution to the world's traffic accident epidemic is not one
single measure but a combination of better roads, cars, driver
training, improvements in technology and legislation. As an answer to
close to 700 traffic related deaths each day, Chinese authorities are
now charging into action demanding driver monitoring to mitigate risk
factors such as lack of attention, distraction and drowsiness. These
rules will apply to commercial transports such as long-haul buses and
dangerous goods trucks.

In response to this life-saving opportunity now opening up in China,
Smart Eye has proceeded to further develop its stand-alone DMS
system, the Smart AI, and prepare it for the demanding automotive
requirements coupled with high volume production. The result is a
product ready to meet the Chinese legal requirements for buses and
long-haul transports. The product launch is timed with CES Asia in
Shanghai June 11-13.

"We are continuously evaluating where our efforts can save the most
lives utilizing synergies from already existing products. We regard
the current opportunity in China as a prime strategic focus for
making a big impact. We're migrating technology initially developed
for European premium car makers, transferring it to the China
commercial vehicle market. This is a life-saving endeavor. We regard
it as highly beneficial that the technological development is
accelerated by legislative efforts", says Martin Krantz, CEO of Smart
Eye.

Smart AI is one of few driver monitoring systems capable of accurate
eye tracking, following the operator's point of gaze ensuring that
focus stays on the road. Furthermore, Smart AI is packed with safety
features that help protect drivers, passengers, road-users and
pedestrians:

- User identity authentication (ensuring a certified driver)

- High accuracy recognition (all faces, including facemask and sunglasses)

- Enhanced warning system (alerts sleepiness, distractions and yawning)

- Focus forward

- Dangerous behaviour (eating, drinking, smoking)

Smart Eye's local presence in China includes the office in Chongqing
and customers such as Geely and Tongji University for which eye
tracking products and DMS software technology have been delivered.
