Context

Safe In-Car Interactions

Vehicle dashboards are increasingly equipped with sensors and cameras to monitor the driver’s alertness and vigilance. This opens up new possibilities for intuitive and safe in-car interactions, whether in truck fleets or passenger cars.

It takes a few seconds eyes-off-the-road to significantly increase the risk of crash and near-crash. Touch interactions with in-car displays are raising safety concerns, distracting the driver’s attention. Voice interactions can be lengthy, inconsistent, and disrupt sleeping passengers.

ClayDrive is the solution for automotive original equipment manufacturers looking to add a layer of safety with in-car gesture controls.

Backed by years of research in AI and human-machine interactions, ClayDrive is designed to reduce the driver’s cognitive load while driving.
Compared to other solutions, ClayDrive ‘hand-tracking-first’ approach makes it more accurate and more power-efficient than competitor solutions.

This also means that we can create new custom gestures more quickly than our competitors. We are conscious that the CPU must be preserved for vital systems such as DMS, and are able to provide a seamless experience without compromising the performance.

ClayDrive recognizes gestures within a wide sphere of 25 to 45 centimeters from the car’s dashboard and refreshes at frame rate for increased safety and convenience.
