Software for Monitoring of Drowsiness and Other Cognitive States Impacting Human Performance

Technology Overview

This technology offer is by a team with expertise in the development of solutions for measuring physiological and cognitive states. The team offers and develops software modules for measuring several physiological and cognitive states such as drowsiness, distraction, stress, cognitive load, and mind wandering. Monitoring of physiological and cognitive states enables a better understanding of human performances and errors.

Technology Features & Specifications

The software portfolio for physiological and cognitive states monitoring comprises several core modules which are delivered with an application programming interface (API) adapted to the customer's platform and data specifications. Adaptive solutions that fit the customers’ needs and sensor types can be provided. Examples of available software include: 

  • Software for measuring drowsiness (from ocular data, cardiac data, or a combination of both)
  • Software for detecting visual distraction (from gaze tracking data)
  • Software for extracting eye features (ocular data) from eye and face images
  • Software for measuring stress (from ocular data, cardiac data, or a combination of both)

Potential Applications

A key target application for these software is for improving safety - in transportation, such as driver and passenger monitoring, and in industrial settings, such as operator monitoring in control rooms. The solutions can also be used in other applications such as aviation, medical diagnosis, sleep medicine, gaming, and training. These solutions for drowsiness monitoring enable development of the next generation of driver/passenger monitoring solutions and fatigue risk management systems.

Market Trends and Opportunities

According to Global Industry Analyst Incorporated, the global market for drowsiness monitors is projected to reach US$4.2 billion by 2024. Europe is the largest market worldwide, followed by the US. Asia Pacific is the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 19.6% for the analysis period of 2016 – 2024, led by the region’s appetite for safe and affordable automobiles.

Customer Benefits

This technology enables the reduction of accidents and improvement of user experience in transportation and industrial applications, as measures can be taken upon detection of drowsiness, stress, or loss of focus.
