EyeTech Eye Tracking Technology for Automotive Distracted and Distracted Driving Story by Channel 3
Every day 9 people die in the USA from distracted driving. EyeTech’s eye tracking technology could help alert distracted or drowsy drivers by monitoring the driver’s eyes. Texting while driving is becoming a huge problem and montioring a drivers face and eyes could help save thousands of lives every year. EyeTech has several automotive companies evaluating the technology and it may be several years before its AEye technology is integrated into the dash, but the first step is finding a partner who can roll out an aftermarket solution that can simply clip to the dash of any vehicle. Fleet management, heavy duty machinery and other commercial vehicles will be the first to adopt the technology but eventually every vehicle could be equipped to help prevent accidents and save lives.
