Eyesight Technologies, a provider of edge-based, computer vision AI solutions, for the in-car automotive industry, announced a partnership with a well known, publicly traded Chinese Tier-1, to bring DriverSense, Eyesight’s Driver Monitoring System to Automakers in the Chinese market.
China is the largest auto manufacturer in the world, with nearly 28 million vehicles rolling off their assembly lines last year — and with that, intelligent vehicle technologies have become a main focus. In January of last year, in response to China leading the world in automobile deaths (20% of those caused by drowsy and distracted driving), the government announced that by 2025, all new cars will be equipped with an intelligent system. As a result, there is a critical need in China for Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS).
“Improving automotive safety is Eyesight’s highest priority,” said David Tolub, CEO of Eyesight. “We are proud to partner with another Tier-1 and expand our already significant presence in one of the world’s fastest-growing and most influential strategic global markets.”
