KeyLemon and Visteon improve interaction between humans and cars

KeyLemon S.A., a leader in facial recognition technology, announces that Visteon Corporation has licensed its software to develop a unique solution, delivering a more intuitive driving experience. The system creates a profile of the driver, continually saving and updating driver preferences, which are automatically applied before the engine is started.

Trends in the car industry clearly require innovative technology to enhance the overall driver experience and to provide additional security features. Imagine a car recognizing the driver upon entry, automatically adjusting the settings to each person’s preferences, including your ideal seat position, temperature and even music choices. Once in motion, the vehicle notifies a distracted driver if a pedestrian is crossing the street, and even creates audible alerts when the driver is drowsy.

KeyLemon’s face recognition technology represents a major leap forward in driver recognition, and features such as eye-blinking count and frontal face detection have great potential. Details about Visteon’s implementation using KeyLemon’s face recognition technology, can be read at the Visteon blog. Visteon Corporation is an American global automotive parts company with 55'000 employees and a revenue of more than USD13 billion.

Facial recognition technology, until recently, has mainly been used for accessing devices, such as computers and high security applications. But the potential for other industries to apply the same technology, with significant user benefits, is now being explored, as Gilles Florey, CEO of KeyLemon S.A., a Swiss-based company, explains: “When we first began collaborating with Visteon our focus was not the automotive industry. However, we have been able to optimize our face recognition solutions within Visteon’s IT architecture to great effect, consuming very low memory and CPU.”

Thanks to a collaborative strategy of ‘continuous technological enhancement’ KeyLemon and Visteon are showing how software and hardware can be used to vastly improve the interactive possibilities between humans and computers in various domains.
