Seeing Machines worked with Samsung to create a cockpit that demoed the world’s first OLED eye-tracking windscreen display with eye-tracking heads-up display interface. It showcases how eye movements looking at the screen can highlight icons for interactions with contacts, music and air conditioning/heat.
The goal is to minimize driver distraction by keeping eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. Through the eye-tracking HUD the driver can access calling contacts, play music and climate control.
There are three features on the menu. The icons are highlighted when the driver looks at it. There are yes and no buttons on the steering wheel. The demonstrator driver looks at the icon for phone contacts and taps yes, then he scrolls through the different faces with his eyes to chose the person he would like call and taps yes on the steering wheel to initiate the call.
“This year we worked with Samsung to show an incredible demo that showcases an eye-tracking controlled heads-up display windscreen. This is another example on how committed Seeing Machines is to road safety not only to occupants but for all road users,” said Seeking Eye’s CEO Ken Kroeger.
