Logistics FleetsThe logistics fleets are prime candidates for deploying autonomous trucks and some are among the pioneers for doing so. Some relationships were covered in AV software platforms section. A few additional comments on the logistics companies are included below.

If Musk still thinks that DMS is all about eye-tracking, he needs an update. Many leading systems no longer measure just one element, such as head position, eye gaze, face, or eyelid closure. Rather, they track multiple elements to generate a more holistic view for data and analysis.

Some people think that driver monitoring is only eye-tracking. It’s not,” stressed Mike Lenné, senior vice president for human factors & aftermarket solutions at Seeing Machines, during a recent interview with EE Times.

He explained that eye-tracking must be done exceptionally well to have a chance at doing driver monitoring.” But when people ask, Can you detect visual distraction, cognitive distraction, drowsiness, intoxication, etc.,”  Lenné noted that the issue comes down to how good are you at harnessing the value, applying AI to those raw signals that come from eye-tracking, and harnessing that into useful,  higher level drivers’ state feature?”

Nick DiFore, senior vice president for automotive at Seeing Machines, concurred. If you can’t do a good job of tracking head, face and eyes, you are not going to have a lot of the requisite data” that enables you to translate it into high-level drivers’ state analysis, he explained.

Taking a few steps back, DiFore explained that Seeing Machines’ early lead in DMS derived not just from its data accuracy, but also a system design that made reliable signals available.”

Critical is the optical path,” said DiFore, including camera, image sensor, lens and illumination technology. Combined with software algorithms, that really determines how robust the system will be,” said DiFore.

DiFore remembers that at the lab stage, Seeing Machines might have seemed little different from its many competitors. But once the DMS went into a car, driving in darkness and sunlight, car OEMs had to factor in that people do weird things” like putting on sunglasses, glasses and contact lenses. DiFore said, These are not even corner cases. It’s the real world.”

The differences in offerings by Seeing Machines and by its rivals have even widened when DMS companies began applying human-factor science to the collected data, seeking to understand what’s really going on inside the driver’s head.

The goal of the caucus is ensuring our nation remains the global leader in light-based technology innovation,” Morelle said. Optics and photonics technologies quite literally light the way for our future.”

The congressional push for photonics innovations and the scaling of manufacturing is also backed by the Defense Department, which relies on precision optics technology for a range of weapons. The Pentagon is promoting the technology through efforts such as the National Imperative for Industrial Skills launched in November 2020. The initiative includes a precision optics consortium.

We’ve got to have a skilled workforce that’s rightly sized,” said Adele Ratcliff, director of industrial base analysis and sustainment in DoD’s Office of Industry Policy.

We have to have a coordinated approach on investments, starting with early research,” Ratliff added. Then we have to move into applied technology, helping to bridge across from the art of possible to the art of practical. We have to have that investment in manufacturing scale-up in this country with that coordinated effort on workforce.”

Ratliff concluded: Then we have to help create that aggregated demand signal for how this technology can be used so that our investors in the United States will invest in our companies.”

And paying skilled workers a living wage to operate the machines that make those products.
