Eyesight Technologies announced that it has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Chinese Tier 1 automotive manufacturer Hefei Zhixin Automotive Technology (HZAT). The initial deal marks the start of a broader strategic partnership between the two companies.

Israel-based Eyesight Technologies produces advanced in-cabin computer vision solutions for motor vehicles, including the DriverSense Driver Monitoring System. The DriverSense system watches a driver’s eyes, pupils, head and gaze to determine if the driver is paying attention to the road or is drowsy or distracted. This vital information can be used by a vehicle to prevent accidents.
