The emotion-aware car: the path to full autonomy

As drivers and passengers we expect our interactions with the vehicles we use to be much more personalized, conversational and relational — very much like the devices we use every day. Emotion AI is being integrated into supplier technology stacks, infotainment systems and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, both in human-driven and autonomous cars. This will not only increase safety, but will also enhance the in-cab experience.

Increased Road Safety
Using in cabin cameras, facial expression analysis can monitor for driver distraction, fatigue, and frustration. Integrated into advanced driver assistance systems this can help prevent accidents before they happen: activating brakes, reducing speed, increasing audio volume, lowering temperature, issuing notifications and alerts.
Operation of Autonomous Car
In semi-autonomous cars our facial expression analysis will determine if the driver is alert and sufficiently engaged to assume safe control of the car. In self-driving cars, Emotion AI monitors the mood and reactions of the passengers to ensure that the transportation experience is safe and enjoyable.
Personalized transportation experience
Infotainment systems can provide highly personalized recommendations and adjustments based on the mood of the car's occupants, adults and children alike. Based on joy or frustration the car could recommend alternate routes and interesting stops along the road, or adjust the audio system or climate control.
