Smart Eye: Geely och Smart Eye samarbetar för att göra semi-autonoma bilar 2019

Pressmeddelandet nedan finns endast tillgängligt på engelska.

Geely Auto Group (Geely) will work with Smart Eye on the development
of a new range of high-end safety systems using Smart Eye's
AI-powered driver monitoring (DMS) technology. The new systems, in
part, will allow semi-autonomous drive to become possible. Geely and
Smart Eye will further develop the technology to produce
semi-autonomous capable cars in 2019.

"Geely is proud to announce this partnership with Smart Eye as safety
has always been our primary concern. It's only a natural step that we
collaborate with the world leader in AI-powered eye tracking
technology to ensure the safety and security of all occupants in our
vehicles." said An Conghui, President and CEO of Geely Auto Group.

By studying movement of the eye, face and head, Smart Eye's technology
will assist in gaining insight into Geely drivers' attention state,
focus and hypothetical drowsiness on the road. Its goal is to
understand and assist the driver in risky traffic situations and act
accordingly. A significant majority of the world's traffic accidents
still occur due to driver's distraction or impairment, such as
engaging with a mobile device, other passengers or facing sudden
illness. Smart Eye's driver monitoring technology is therefore
developed to prevent traffic collision and save lives. The DMS
technology will work in conjunction with and enhance the first level
3 ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) system for Geely.

"A driver monitoring system is a safe and necessary step towards
highly automated cars, and with more than 19 years' of experience in
eye-tracking, we are more than ready for the mass-market. It's a
great honor to enter the Chinese market together with Geely, one of
the main Chinese OEMs holding a large market share in China. And
let's put it this way about our presence in China - we're here to
stay." says Martin Krantz, CEO and Founder of Smart Eye.

More information about Geely's new Smart Eye equipped vehicle will be
available in due course.
