Eyesight And Ariel University Deploying Mobile Laboratory To Research The Driver’s State Behind The Wheel


Eyesight Technologies, an AI computer vision solutions leader, and Ariel University, one of Israel’s leading national research universities, announced an ongoing collaboration on the university’s “Mobile Laboratory” (M-Lab).

The collaboration is part of Ariel University's wider study, and will provide Eyesight Technologies with unique datasets to study the state of drivers behind the wheel.

The M-Lab is an interdisciplinary research collaboration project run by experts at Ariel University in the fields of Computer Science, Robotics, and Human Experience with a focus on designing user interfaces, feedback systems, and driver-intervention schemas. The M-Lab was designed to test real-world driving scenarios by utilizing the array of sensors integrated into a test vehicle.

The M-Lab researchers utilise sensors for collecting data on the road and external driving environment (e.g., LiDAR and external cameras), as well as sensors for monitoring the driver's state, such as: mental workload, detection of stress (skin conductance), vigilance (grip force on the steering wheel), fatigue (heart rate, respiration, face and eye-tracking) as well as attention on road (face and eye-tracking).

The M-Lab test vehicle is equipped with Eyesight Technologies Driver Sense, a driver monitoring system which provides the lab with accurate monitoring data related to the driver's face and eyes. The vision layer of the company's technology monitors eye openness, blink rate, the direction of the driver's gaze, and head pose, among other factors to determine the state of the driver behind the wheel.

Eyesight Technologies is utilising M-Lab's field tests and the data from the various sensors to extract valuable insight about the state of the driver, allowing the company to further evaluate, monitor and improve its driver monitoring solution. The sensor fusion and data collaboration between all available systems provide Eyesight Technologies with crucial information beyond what is available using the driver Monitoring sensor data alone.

The M-Lab project utilises Eyesight Technologies' accurate vision layer, detecting and tracking head pose and a variety of eye related data, as part of the research tools used in various ongoing projects such as examining a driver's ability to regain control of a vehicle utilising a semi-autonomous cruise control under differing mental workloads, as well as helping to substantiate the concept of “Trusted Autonomy.”

“We are excited to collaborate on the Mobile Laboratory project,” said David Tolub CEO of Eyesight Technologies. “Ariel University is one of Israel's most respected research institutions and we are very hopeful that the findings from this project will continue to advance automotive solutions and will help create a safer road.”

AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May

The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.

In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.

The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.

Key elements of the online summit:

  • Covering key topics of the industries
  • Live 3 hour online summit
  • 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
  • Recorded product demos
  • Live audience questions
  • Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
  • Video panel sessions
  • Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
  • Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
  • After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365

Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
