Honda Files Patent Application for a new Kind of Front Air Dam

A Honda patent application for a new, unique kind of air dam that could be used on a variety of vehicles.

Mitsubishi Electric's In-vehicle Driver Monitoring System Simultaneously Monitor Driver And Front Passenger

Mitsubishi Electric's in-vehicle Driver Monitoring System Simultaneously Monitor Driver and Front Passenger with one wide-angle camera - Fareastgizmos
Mitsubishi Electric today announced the development of the first in-vehicle driver monitoring system using one wide-angle camera to detect the driver and front passenger simultaneously. Conventional driver-monitoring systems generally use a camera to analyze the driver’s face for inattentiveness or drowsiness. Recent imaging systems monitor not only the driver but also the front passenger for added safety and convenience.Mitsubishi Electric has now developed a technology that uses just one wide-angle camera to monitor both the driver and the front passenger and warn them about potentially dangerous driving behavior, such as looking off to the side or sleepiness, and to identify face and hand gestures for enhanced assistance, such as changing air conditioning settings.

The wide-angle camera can be installed flexibly within the vehicle and eliminates the need to install a second camera for the front passenger. Mitsubishi Electric will exhibit its driver monitoring system during the 45th Tokyo Motor Show 2017 at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition complex in Tokyo from October 27 to November 5.
