Smart Mobility – A Suite that Transforms Automotive Safety and Comfort
Smart Mobility is the next-generation intelligent in-vehicle solution that combines in-car monitoring (Driver and Occupant Monitoring System) and surrounding sensory systems (360-degree Surround View Monitoring System). The suite is expected to help VinAI arrive at one ultimate mission: Transforming the automotive industry by making driving safer and more comfortable with AI.
Until the driverless future comes into a reality, humans will still be in the loop, and technology is here to ensure drivers' safety and alertness. Backed by VinAI's world-class facial recognition technology, which ranks sixth in the NIST's WILD category, the in-cabin Driver and Occupant Monitoring System will alert if the driver is fatigued, drowsy; or engrossed in poor driving habits such as phone usage, smoking, distraction, etc. The system ranks high on compatibility, with the ability to integrate seamlessly with multiple hardware platforms, allowing automotive manufacturers to optimize switching costs.
Also on display is be the 360-degree Surround View Monitoring. By rendering a 360-degree view from four single fisheye cameras and leveraging artificial intelligence, VinAI's Surround View Monitoring offers drivers complete awareness of the vehicle's surroundings and eliminates blind spots while its AI model automatically recognized pedestrians, bikes, cars and notify the driver of potential dangerous situations. The solution can be seamlessly integrated into different car segments with high technical feasibility, ensuring all drivers enjoy a safe and comfortable road experience.
