Analog Devices and Jungo Cooperate on In-Cabin Monitoring Technology to Improve Vehicle Safety

5 FEBRUARY 2020

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) announced today a collaboration with Jungo  to develop a Time-of-Flight (ToF) and 2D infrared- (IR) based camera solution to enable driver- and in-cabin monitoring in vehicles. The combination of ADI’s ToF technology with Jungo’s Codriver software is expected to enable the monitoring of vehicle occupants for levels of drowsiness and distraction by observing head and body position as well as eye gaze. The solution is also expected to enable smart vehicle interaction based on face, body, and hand gestures, and offer a facial recognition capability that identifies indivduals in the cabin and gives them access to features such as infotainment personalization, personalized services, and ridesharing payments.

“The collaboration between ADI and Jungo opens the door to new and innovative augmented reality applications beyond today’s gesture control,” said Vlad Bulavsky, product line director, Automotive Connectivity and Sensing, Analog Devices. “We believe our work together can  bring cabin sensing with ToF-based driver- and occupant monitoring to the next level and improve vehicle safety.”

3D ToF is a type of scannerless LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) that uses high power optical pulses in durations of nanoseconds to capture depth information (typically over short distances) from a scene of interest. ADI offers products and solutions to directly enhance the capabilities of 3D ToF systems, including processing, laser drivers and power management, along with development boards and software/firmware to aid in quick implementation of 3D ToF solutions.

Jungo’s CoDriver software uses state-of-the-art deep learning, machine learning, and computer vision algorithms to detect in real time the driver state using driver facing cameras.  It also supports in-vehicle full detection technology with functions such as counting of the number of occupants, detection of seat belt wearing or detection or observing of critical medical conditions.

“Jungo’s CoDriver monitoring algorithms are used by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to keep their drivers and passengers safe and develop innovative use cases that understand an occupant’s state while in the vehicle,” said Ophir Herbst, CEO, Jungo Ltd. “We are delighted to collaborate with Analog Devices to make vehicles smarter and enable OEMs to comply with regulations and innovate in their next-generation vehicles by using our algorithms and ADI’s leading ToF technology.”
