Xylon, a leading provider of IP cores, services and solutions based on adaptive SoC and FPGA devices, has launched its Artieye Driver Monitoring System (DMS) Technology Suite. Designed to address the growing complexity in the development of DMS and other in-cabin AI systems, its aim is to establish bio-medically proven levels of driver drowsiness and distraction.

The suite offers a collection of modules that work to cover many AI designer needs, from road data collection and neural networks optimization, to full AI implementations in embedded hardware. At the same time, it enables users to benefit from accelerated development cycles and enhanced control over their DMS products.

In offering these benefits, Artieye includes pre-verified and customizable modules that cover all stages of an AI system’s development – starting with the build-up of a remotely tracked test fleet with heterogeneous sensors kits, newly developed data acquisition of lab and road driver’s data, and the definition of AI data sets and accurate, bio-medically established, sets of data. The suite also includes different neural networks optimized to reliably detect driver drowsiness, as well as visual, manual, and cognitive distractions.

Artieye additionally offers a complete demo and evaluation platform based on the AMD Zynq UltraScale+ adaptive SoC that runs the implemented DNN models in real time. To test and verify the electronic implementation, Xylon has developed various automated test benches that use logiRECORDER, Xylon’s HIL capable data logger, to inject synthetic and real-world raw reference data sets into hardware, and cross-compare the system’s outputs with the established ground-truth values.

Xylon confirmed that users can either license the full Artieye technology suite, buy it outright, or purchase different parts of it to suit their needs.
