Facial recognition comes to the connected and autonomous car
At CES Show in Las Vegas, HARMAN revealed concepts that include facial recognition as part of a wider range of technologies to increase the 'experiences per mile.'
The suite of sensors monitors the driver to capture biometric data and offer augmented reality experiences such as E-Mirror surround view and contextual navigation system. The system will also be able to identify if you are tired or distracted and would be useful for handovers for L2 and L3 scenarios. It could also be used for profiles in the car and adjust settings as soon as you sit in the car.
The facial recognition forms part of HARMAN's Premium Digital Cockpit that integrates the vehicle’s cluster, infotainment and safety features with QLED and OLED displays. There is also augmented reality for E-Mirror surround view that is compatible with Forward-Facing Cameras and LiDAR in a bid to bring more ADAS-equipped vehicles to the market.
HARMAN also showed E-Mirrors designed to enhance safety through extended vision around the car
