ams OSRAM releases a proof of concept for high performance 3D sensing that supports advanced driver monitoring capabilities-

• ICARUS proof of concept provides a practical demonstration of a 3D sensing system for driver monitoring that supports new features such as augmented reality heads-up display, facial recognition, and driver drowsiness detection.

• ICARUS is a simple, low-cost upgrade from existing near-infrared-based driver monitoring hardware that requires the addition of an amsOSRAM dot pattern projector to enable depth detection.

AmsOSRAM (SIX: AMS), a world leader in optical solutions, today demonstrates a proof of concept for ICARUS showing how to upgrade the design of a driver monitoring system (DMS) to support valuable new features such as augmented reality head-ups. Was announced. Display (AR-HuD), secure driver certification, advanced drowsiness detection.

ams OSRAM is exhibiting the ICARUS system at the Automotive Technology Exhibition (Yokohama, May 25-27, 2022).

ICARUS is an advanced DMS proof of concept mounted on an instrument cluster or A-pillar. The ams OSRAM 3D sensing system uses structured lighting to provide a high resolution depth map (<± 0.5% depth accuracy in the 45-70 cm range). It uses the amsOSRAM depth extraction algorithm, which provides room for even higher performance in the future for customers who support custom product development. The system is implemented in ams OSRAM's Automotive Vertical Resonator Surface Emissive Laser (VCSEL) Near Infrared (NIR) Flood and Dot Pattern Projector.

Customers can deploy the DMS software in conjunction with an accurate depth map of the driver’s face to determine the 3D position of the driver’s eye and head poses. High-value driver monitoring features such as AR-HuD and driver authentication can be based on this 3D location information. Accurate 3D measurement of the driver’s head position with the ICARUS system also supports the implementation of software that detects microsleep and other signs of advanced drowsiness that pose a traffic safety risk.

ICARUS shows that automotive OEMs have an easy, low-cost upgrade path from DMS designs using 2DNIR sensing to full-featured, high-value 3D sensing systems. All you have to do to upgrade is add a NIR dot pattern projector and supporting depth extraction software. “Structured optical sensing technology has been proven in the consumer market, for example, used for secure facial recognition in mobile phones,” said Firat Sarialtun, Global Segment Manager for Cabin Sensing at amsOSRAM. “But previously, in the automotive world, 3D sensing was only implemented with a dedicated indirect flight time (iToF) camera. The ICARUS system is the 3D sensing that the automotive industry has gained in the consumer world with OSRAM. Leveraging experience, we have shown that it can be applied to upgrade existing 2DNIR-based DMS systems easily and at low cost. A single laser component. ”ICARUS empirical demonstration is available for demonstration to customers. became. Contact the amsOSRAM car sales organization for more information.
