Vital signs: Improving the safety and comfort of vehicles using AI algorithms

Research News /

The transport of tomorrow will not only be autonomous — it will also be comfortable and safe. At IAA MOBILITY 2023 in Munich, the Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems IMS will 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 the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), which requires the installation of internal cameras in vehicles. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft will present this innovation and many more at the joint Fraunhofer booth in Hall B1, Booth D11.
