Driver and In-Cabin Monitoring Systems


Xilinx is the #1 global silicon supplier

face tracking, head and eye tracking image

Driver monitoring systems (DMS) actively monitor the driver’s state of attentiveness and engagement in real-time using vision-based and infrared sensors. Efficiently processing this sensor data for production-ready vehicles requires an adaptive computing platform. The XA Zynq®-7000 and Zynq UltraScale+™ MPSoC platforms’ hardware accelerators tightly-coupled with application software are able to efficiently detect and analyze:

- Head pose and orientation
- Eyelids
- Eye gaze
- Pupils
- Emotions

- Attentiveness
- Sunglasses
- Scarves
- Face masks

In-Cabin Monitoring Systems (ICMS) quickly and accurately identify vehicle occupants’ identity, emotions, gestures, and preferences in real-time to enhance safety and comfort within the vehicle. The XA Zynq-7000 and Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC platforms can adapt to any sensor configurations, including multiple vision-based, infrared, and radar sensors throughout the interior of the vehicle. Supported features include:

- Multi-face detection
- Number of occupants
- Occupant location
- Occupant biometrics
- Seatbelt detection
- Pet detection
- Child seat detection

The adaptability of the XA Zynq-7000 and Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC platforms aligns with the continued evolution of computer vision (CV) processing methods and neural net (NN) algorithms, which are utilized to interpret real-time tracking data and then translate the data into actionable elements. As these methods evolve, our adaptive hardware and software platform keeps your system design ahead of the curve.
