SEOUL – Hyundai Mobis, a parts manufacturing unit of the South Korean automotive group Hyundai, has unveiled new in-cabin healthcare technology that can measure and analyze brain waves to check the condition of drivers. The technology should prevent accidents that can occur due to drowsy driving or sudden health problems.

New healthcare technology called “Mr. Brain” will be applied to public buses for evaluation. Hyundai Mobis would extend the demonstration of its new technology to commercial vehicles. “In addition to the safety and convenience of passengers that are necessary at the stage of fully autonomous driving, we have started to deliver results in the area of ​​digital healthcare,” said Lee Seung-hwan, head of the sector. Hyundai Mobis research, in a July 21 statement.

Mr. Brain uses atrium-type sensors to detect brain waves around the ears and determine the condition of conductors. machine learning interprets what brain wave signals mean. Connected to a smartphone app, Mr. Brain sends a warning when the driver’s attention is lost. Crash Reduction Technology alerts various sensory organs using LEDs around the driver’s seat, a vibrating seat, and a headrest speaker.

Biohealth technology will eventually evolve into a personalized in-cabin security service that integrates brain waves and other biological signals to understand passenger psychology, Hyundai Mobis said, adding that at the autonomous driving stage, various services health and entertainment for passengers would emerge. regardless of the recognition of the driving environment outside the vehicle.

Hyundai Mobis has accelerated the development of sensors, cameras and other parts for autonomous vehicles and infotainment for autonomous vehicles. In 2019, the company made a strategic investment in Beijing Deep Glint Technology, a Chinese startup known for facial recognition technology, to develop motion recognition and pattern analysis using deep learning. . Facial recognition is said to be used to prevent drowsiness while driving and to detect health problems.

In March 2020, Hyundai Mobis unveiled an interior safety alert system using radar sensors to prevent child deaths from heatstroke. The radar-based Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) system alerts the driver via the dashboard or smartphone if a passenger remains in the back seat.
