DMS Design: In-Vehicle Monitoring Systems (IVMS)

We design driver monitoring systems, also known as DMS cameras, which help our customers develop novel business solutions and ensure comfort and safety on the road. The implementation of driver monitoring software is crucial for enhancing operational efficiency and accuracy.
Our automotive experts utilise various processors and technological infrastructures, but we believe that the Ambarella CV25 chip is the best off-the-shelf hardware option that can be used for the rapid development and deployment of face recognition, tracking, and analysis solutions.

Our Driver Monitoring Solutions

Driver monitoring solutions at Promwad employ cutting-edge technologies to assess the driver's behaviour and physiological indicators. Our hardware and software platforms can reduce human error that may be caused by typical prolonged operation conditions such as fatigue, distractions, and drowsiness.

The future of DMS

We expect driver monitoring solutions to become a default feature in all modern vehicles. They already show steady momentum towards becoming the leading solution in the landscape of automotive safety systems:

  • US industry leaders such as General Motors and Ford are contributing to the growth of Level 2+ driving assistance solutions.
  • The European Union has mandated driver monitoring systems for OEM vehicles produced in 2024 and beyond.

Driver Monitoring System Features

As a manufacturer of automotive driver state monitoring systems, Promwad excels in integrating cutting-edge features that meet safety and performance standards. Explore the various applications for your driver-tracking solution.
Driver drowsiness

Driver Fatigue Monitoring

The dash camera tracks the person’s state of awareness and responds to critical situations with an alert. The system identifies distractions, micro-changes in steering behaviour, drowsiness, negative emotions, and the possible influence of alcohol or drug intoxication. All abnormal states are instantly identified and controlled.

Driver fatigue detection helps prevent road accidents by delivering prompt warnings and bringing the driver’s attention back to the primary task of operating the vehicle.

Passenger and Interior Monitoring

The system is not limited to driver monitoring cameras and can be integrated with other ADAS solutions. We also provide passenger or in-cabin monitoring software with detection and classification capabilities, allowing for personalised adjustments. These solutions are based on one device only, as Ambarella CV25 supports up to 3 cameras. The cameras detect the position, passenger count, and seatbelt status of everyone in its field of view.
The system categorises each passenger by sex, age, and other characteristics, which enables the personalisation of convenience settings like heating, music, and seat position, as well as the adjustment of passenger safety features. For example, the system can turn off the airbag if it detects a baby seat on the front passenger seat or it can lower the heating settings, since high temperatures in a confined space may be dangerous to a child.

Real-time Face Tracking for Safety and Convenience

The system’s built-in real-time face tracking capabilities allow it to form a complete picture of the physical and emotional states. The AI vision camera modules analyse head pose, facial expression, and gaze direction — everything that affects awareness. If the driver tracking software detects an anomaly, it provides an attention warning.

We are currently developing additional interaction interfaces for our custom driver tracking systems. The prime example is innovative gesture control, which enables touch-free music control. This feature reduces distractions and helps drivers stay focused on the road, enhancing safety and improving the overall user experience.
