Supplier Hyundai Mobis said it developed M.Brain, a new health technology based on the measurement of brain waves, and is using it for the automotive industry.
“Brainwave measurement, along with other biosigns, is known to be one of the most advanced and sophisticated technologies to work with,” the company said.
M.Brain measures the driver’s condition in real time by detecting brain waves around the ears through earphone sensors. The supplier introduced machine learning to interpret brain wave signals.
M.Brain can be linked to a smartphone app and tell a driver that he is losing attention. Accident prevention technology also offers different sensory warnings such as sight (LEDs around the driver’s seat), touch (vibrating seat) and hearing (headrest speakers).
M. Brain is first tested in South Korea on public buses from Gyeonggi-do.
“The technology based on brain waves has an infinite development potential because it is able to measure huge amounts of data, which is why M.Brain is considered an innovative technology,” said Hyundai Mobis.
Hyundai Mobis develops health technology for autonomous driving with the help of bio-signals.
At CES 2018, the company demonstrated DDREM (Departed Driver Rescue & Exit Maneuver), which prevents accidents caused by drowsy driving.
In 2019, Eye Tracking DSW (Driver State Warning) and last year ROA (Rear Occupant Alert) was developed to detect small children in the back seat using radar.
