Automotive In-Cabin Systems Offer Employment Opps For Sensors

By Mat Dirjish

Hyundai Mobis says it’s developing automotive in-cabin systems that employ a plethora of state-of-the-art autonomous driving sensors. One example is the company’s radar-based Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) system.

The ROA system prevents passengers from being left behind in rear seats. In the past, a weight sensor in children’s car seats or an ultrasonic sensor was the norm. Hyundai Mobis says it improves detection accuracy by replacing them with the radar sensor.

If a passenger is left in the rear seat, the passenger detection system alerts the driver with the sound made when the door is closed, or through the instrument panel, or smartphone. The system is said to have secured electromagnetic reliability so that it works normally near high-voltage lines and railroad tracks, and be precise enough to distinguish adults, infants, and pets.

The company is planning to develop a radar capable of measuring the heartbeats of passengers and expand the biometric function this year. For more details, visit Hyundai Mobis.
