TriEye and Continental Engineering Services Collaborate to Bring the Power of SWIR to Driver Monitoring Systems

TriEye | May 22, 2021

Israeli startup TriEye, the developer of the world's first mass-market Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) sensor, declares today its cooperation with Continental Engineering Services (CES), one of the main designing and creation accomplices for auto and industry clients. This joint effort will zero in on the execution of SWIR imaging frameworks in Driver Monitoring Systems. TriEye's detecting arrangement demonstrates viability in testing perceivability conditions, like high-glare from the sun, conceal designs from the environmental factors, or moving toward vehicle headlights - identification situations that are foremost for the wellbeing and dependability of in-lodge checking. Past upgraded perceivability, the organizations will assess the remarkable added worth of SWIR for distant material detecting in contrast with other sensor modalities. With TriEye's innovation, Continental Engineering Services will want to offer its clients significant detecting arrangements, for example, improved client ID capacities or exact safety belt identification. "CES is attempting to coordinate wellbeing and vehicle elements innovations to acknowledge protected and charming driving. When coordinating TriEye's SWIR detecting innovation, our high level inside detecting and driver observing arrangements profit by its high strength and unwavering quality," said Uwe Mühlberger, Director Segment Interior Electronic Functions at Continental Engineering Services. "We are pleased and charmed to report our coordinated effort with CES which denotes another significant advance in addressing the vision difficulties of car frameworks," said Avi Bakal, TriEye's CEO and Co-Founder, "Our joint work on planning a predominant in-lodge checking arrangement is bearing leafy foods as of now see critical premium from the market for this bleeding edge arrangement."
