Collaborators Deliver Next-Gen AI-based Driver Monitoring

Ambarella and Smart Eye are partnering to deliver a driver monitoring system (DMS) platform that tracks driver actions and intentions. The platform is based on Ambarella’s CV22AQ CVflow computer vision processor, which offers image processing and artificial intelligence (AI) computing at a power consumption typically below 2.5W. Smart Eye AI software running on CV22AQ will make it possible for automotive OEMs and tier-1s to deploy driver and in-cabin monitoring systems with advanced AI features.

The Ambarella CV22AQ offers support for both global shutter and rolling shutter CMOS sensors, both of which are required for in-cabin applications. The processor’s Image Signal Pipeline (ISP), with support for RGB-IR color filter arrays, enables accurate detection and monitoring, even in low-light in-cabin environments.

 

Additionally, the CV22AQ CVflow architecture provides the computational power necessary for multi-camera monitoring system designs, running multiple AI algorithms on each video stream. CV22AQ includes a suite of advanced security features, including secure boot, TrustZone, and I/O virtualization to protect against hacking. For more info, visit Ambarella and Smart Eye.
