Seeing Machines Advances Human-Machine Interactions

Progress in ability to study driver distraction ...

"Scene Camera, released in November 2005, is the latest innovation from Seeing Machines Pty Ltd, and is companion technology for the company's faceLAB R&D product.

faceLAB is a non-contact computer-based system created to map and observe the human face. It has revolutionized gaze and eyelid closure tracking and has demonstrated techniques that can forever change the way humans and machines interact. The computer vision technologies available in faceLAB are now used around the globe in research projects covering diverse fields of investigation: human factors problems, human-computer interaction, robotics, vision research, psychological studies, and intelligent vehicles R&D.

According to Professor Alex Zelinsky, one of the developers of the technology, a prominent application for faceLAB is in laboratory and simulator studies of driver fatigue, distraction, human workload management systems and intelligent vehicle applications. "Our faceLAB technology provides headpose, gaze direction and eyelid closure tracking and has immediate and far-reaching impact in the realm of transportation safety and active information awareness systems," he said. "It is used across the automotive industry by clients such as Bosch, Delphi, Volvo, Motorola, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Daimler Chrysler, Peugeot and Toyota, as well as many of the leading academic research groups and transportation authorities worldwide."   continued ...   (Via NE Asia)
