For safe driving, Hyundai Mobis creates an integrated vital signs controller.

According to a statement made by Hyundai Mobis, the company has created an integrated controller that examines the driver's vital indications, including posture, heart rate, and brainwaves.

The system, which the business refers to as the "Smart Cabin Controller," is made up of four sensors for assessing the vital signs of passengers, a controller for analyzing those signals, and software logic that can analyze vital signs that change in real time.

This is the first time a specific healthcare controller has been built that can do an integrated analysis of numerous vital signs, even though there are existing controllers in the mobility business that can process some vital indicators.

Hyundai Mobis claims that with this new controller, it is now well on the road to achieving safety technology that is focused on the occupants rather than the performance of the vehicle.

Four sensors are included in the Smart Cabin Controller: a 3D camera to record occupant posture, an ECG sensor installed on the steering wheel, an ear-set sensor to monitor brainwaves near the ears, and an HVAC sensor to monitor cabin temperature, humidity, and carbon dioxide levels. In order to aid in safe driving, the controller continuously assesses numerous vital signals gathered from these sensors.

For instance, if the Electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor detects a high level of stress in the driver, it suggests moving to the autonomous driving mode. If the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) level is too high, it opens windows or changes to the outside-circulation mode. In the event of an emergency, such as a cardiac arrest, this technology is anticipated to go further such that it can direct the vehicle to an emergency room.

Hyundai Mobis anticipates that the vehicle's specialized vital signs controller will help make it possible for it to function as a "moving health check-up center."

According to Cheon Jae-seung, president of Hyundai Mobis Research and Develoapment (R&D) division, Our key competitive edge is the software solution that has been built to bring healthcare to mobility and the controller that enables integrated control. We will update this technology further to give new capabilities, like carsickness avoidance, stress management, and the blocking of drunk driving, based on the unique vital signs database we've put up.

The world's first autonomous driving cockpit system, Vehicle Information and Communication System (VICS), was developed by Hyundai Mobis last year. It includes an ECG sensor, a driver monitoring camera, and technology that reduces motion sickness. Hyundai Mobis also made history by developing the last year.
