Xperi Launches Revolutionary Single Camera Solution for Driver and Occupancy Monitoring

LAS VEGAS – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –DTS, a global leader in the development of extraordinary next-generation audio, imaging and sensing technologies and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Xperi Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: XPER) (“Xperi”), announced today at CES 2022, the launch of its revolutionary single camera DTS AutoSense Pilot and occupancy monitoring solution.

The new solution improves driver and occupancy detection functionality with a single camera, while reducing system-level integration, calibration and installation costs. Xperi will demonstrate the implementation of a single DTS AutoSense camera with a live demonstration at CES at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Automotive Hall (West Hall), booth 3831.

The launch comes at a time when distracted driving and vehicle safety concerns have sparked a series of actions globally to encourage automakers’ implementation of driver and vehicle detection systems. occupation, including the U.S. Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the U.S. Hot Car Act, and Euro NCAP. .

“Road traffic crashes are one of the leading causes of death in the United States for people aged 1 to 54 and kill 1.35 million people worldwide each year.1Said Jeff Jury, Xperi SVP and Managing Director of Connected Car. “So it’s no surprise that the importance of occupancy detection systems and vehicle operators in accident prevention has become a priority in the United States and abroad – and a growing imperative for operators. Car manufacturers. That’s why our pioneering single camera technology is so important – it provides automakers with a cost-effective, quality-driven, and easy-to-integrate system that detects and understands the entire cabin.

The jury notes that most vehicles that today offer driver detection use a camera focused solely on the driver, but, increasingly, the ability to detect the rest of the passenger compartment and its occupants has become critical and an important safety requirement in the future. Most other solutions require a second camera to focus on everything but the driver, with the potential for a complicated and expensive implementation. The unique DTS AutoSense camera driver and occupancy monitoring solve this challenge with technology designed for a wide field of view (WFoV) camera.

DTS AutoSense Single Camera Driver and Occupancy Detection:

  • complies with regulations (Euro NCAP & GSR)

  • supports a multitude of features such as visual distraction (attention zones), manual distraction, activity detection (eating, drinking, talking on the phone and texting), hand-on-the-wheel detection, seat occupancy, age classification (adult, child), body skeleton detection, hand detection, face recognition, object detection, pet detection, drowsiness and classification of body poses

  • can be positioned in CID or under the mirror

  • self-calibrates dynamically with camera orientation

  • increases UX functionality

  • uses proprietary AI / ML technology to ensure quality and reliability of sleepiness or attention scans

  • understands driver condition based on overall activity, rather than facial and eye scan

  • is deployed using edge computing, without requiring cloud connectivity, which means it is designed to allow all data to stay in the vehicle

Recent data not only demonstrates the importance of vehicle safety to consumers and their interest in computer vision systems to help them stay safe on the road.2, but also a lack of confidence in the safety of autonomous vehicles – two-thirds of consumers surveyed do not currently trust autonomous driving technology.3

“As vehicle entertainment becomes more immersive and the safety of all occupants becomes more critical, the shift from driver detection to full in-cab detection is the next logical step. Automakers are not only focusing on vehicle safety, but also on improving the cabin experience and comfort, ”the jury continued. “The pandemic has heightened the importance of the personal vehicle, and more and more consumers see it as a place of refuge and an extension of the office or living room.4 Our unique DTS AutoSense camera sensing technology enables automakers to move forward and deliver the safe and elevated in-cab experience consumers want. ”

DTS AutoSense received industry recognition and was named: one of the top security picks in the CLEPA 2020 Innovation Awards; AutoTech Solution of the Year by the AutoTech Breakthrough Awards, and recently won the AutoSens 2021 award for the most innovative application or deployment of computer vision. Additionally, Xperi was named North American Company of the Year 2021 by Frost & Sullivan, Connected Car Media Industry. Xperi has been identified as one of the top 5 for DMS market share by 2026, as reported to EE Times.

DTS Connected Car is focused on transforming the automotive experience by bringing high-quality multimedia and personalization to the connected car, immersing drivers in more of their favorite audio content and giving them more confidence through solutions AI-powered in-cab detection sensors that improve the safety, comfort and safety of everyone in the car.
