The rising concern for driver safety and assistance is increasing the adoption of driver attention alert systems. The driver attention alert systems are designed to identify signs of driver fatigue, eye-movement and camera-based facial expression.
The growing penetration of electronic devices and adoption of advanced safety technologies in automotive industry is fuelling the growth of driver attention alert systems. Various methods have been developed for tracking the driver alertness. Vendors provide multiple sensors to detect the activity of driver, camera to capture and smart wearable gadgets to record body parameters like temperature, stress level and heartbeat. Vendors in this market are highly focused on research and development to offer unique and advanced technology driver attention alert systems in competitive market. For instance, Magna Solution introduced camera-based monitoring solution, which detects driver’s eye gaze and measures level of distraction and drowsiness. Similarly, Harman, an automotive company developed eye tracking solution with camera and eye-tracking software to monitor driver alertness level and to avoid road accidents. Delphi introduced driver attention alert system that includes touch-free cockpit and 3D instrument cluster. Delphi’s driver attention alert system uses hidden infrared camera to monitor eye movement and to track what driver is looking at. This system uses multi-layer graphics technology to create an enhanced driving experience.
Other providers such as Omron, developed prototype facial recognition system using an infrared camera to track the driver gestures and eye-movement. When Omron’s driver attention alert system detects no response from driver to any warning signal, it automatically slows down the car. Faurecia another software company introduced driver attention alert system called Active Wellness. It uses a car seat that detects driver’s stress level. This solution was developed by Faurecia in cooperation with Stanford University. The seats are installed with piezoelectric sensors to measure the driver’s stress level and heartbeat. Audi introduced driver attention alert system known as Fit Driver. Fit Driver system works when the driver wears a fitness band, which monitors parameters like body temperature and heartbeat rate. The data is then supplemented with others like driving style and brakes applied. Analyzed data alerts the driver to stop the vehicle or slow down.
A leading sensor technology company Plessey, partnered with Segula Technologies, a leading engineering specialist, to develop heart-rate-based driver attention alert system. Some of the leading OEM’s driver attention alert system are Driver Alert (by Ford), Driver Monitoring System (by Toyota), Attention Assist (by Mercedes-Benz), Driver Alert Control (by Volvo) and Fatigue Detection System (by Volkswagen). Several developments in driver attention alert system, with reference to technology, the proliferating growth rate of the market, along with the recent developments and innovations are expected to drive the global driver attention alert system market during the forecast period.
Driver Attention Alert Systems Market: Drivers and challenges
The growing adoption of automotive electronics and increasing safety and security concerns are expected to fuel the global driver attention alert systems market. Features of driver attention alert systems such as reduction in chances of collisions, passenger and pedestrians safety are one of the major reasons driving global driver attention alert systems market. The rising demand for passenger car in developing countries of Asia Pacific region is expected to have a major impact on the demand for driver attention alert systems during the forecast period.
One of the major challenges hindering the growth of driver attention alert systems market is the high cost of this system. Other potential challenges for the global driver attention alert systems market are the distraction of drivers and sensor breakdown in the harsh environment. However, vendors are continuously focused on developing low-cost driver attention alert systems and are expected to overcome cost challenge by the end of the forecast period.
