Vital Signs: Improving the Safety and Comfort of Vehicles using AI Algorithms

article imageThe transport of tomorrow will not only be autonomous - it will also be comfortable and safe. The Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems IMS present AI algorithms that massively improve transportation safety and comfort. To achieve this, optical sensors record vital signs, such as heart and respiratory rates. This data is processed by specially developed AI algorithms. The algorithms are modular and easy to integrate into cars and existing systems. They offer entirely new measurement options for car manufacturers. This development is supported by Euro NCAP, which requires the installation of internal cameras in vehicles.

PiBond create novel Sensor Technology to prevent Hot Car Deaths

article imageFinnish engineers have developed a sensor-based system that can help save tens of thousands of children - and even pets - locked up in cars, intentionally or accidentally, from heat-related deaths each year. The new PictM technology is a solution to calls from US and European safety regulators' that new rules be implemented mandating child presence detection (CPD) systems in new cars. This will help avoid senseless heat-stroke deaths of unattended children.
