Brief description of the project and project goals
The camera-based interior detection allows for the perception of posture, attention and intentions to act and the design of new interior concepts.
The aim of the InCarIn project was to develop a system that uses these findings to identify driver habits and offer them as proactive suggestions for future action.
The range of applications is diverse and offers many aspects, from safety to pure comfort. In addition to the project goal, the attention of the driver was examined to determine whether he concentrates on the road and driving task or whether he talks to the people in the back seat. On the basis of recognized changes in posture, it was thus possible to reconstruct losses of concentration.
Tasks of the IAD Department
In the BMBF project InCarIn, Fraunhofer IOSB worked on making human-machine interaction in the vehicle interior between the occupants and the car as natural and useful as possible. To this end, a camera-based interior detection system was implemented using three RGB-D sensors capable of detecting and analyzing the driver, passenger and all rear-seat occupants.
