Demand for Driverless Cars and Smart Driver Assistance Systems Expands Facial Recognition Applications: MIC
January 12, 2018

 

In line with the megatrend towards smarter and informative vehicles, automakers have aggressively developed new technologies and solutions to address three major issues: the connection between the driver and the road conditions like driving safety and traffic jams, the vehicle conditions such as the theft protection feature, and the connection between the driver and the vehicle, according to Taipei-based and government-backed IT research institute MIC (Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute). "Facial recognition technology can solve all these issues," says Chung-yu Yang, industry analyst at MIC.
