Toyota develops eyelid-monitoring system

Toyota develops an eyelid-monitoring system.

If BMW's rumbling steering wheel, Infiniti's Lane Departure Prevention system, and Volvo's coffee-break alert are not enough to keep you awake at the wheel, then Toyota may have developed just the thing for you. According to its announcement today, Toyota has developed an enhancement to its Pre-Crash safety system that can determine whether or not a driver's eyes are open. The system relies on a driver-monitoring camera and image-processing computer, which determine the position of the driver's upper and lower eyelids. The development follows Toyota's existing face-monitoring technology--available on the Lexus LS600h--which tracks the orientation of the driver's face and sounds a warning if it detects a sustained period of inattention. The eye-monitoring system is scheduled for launch in Japan "in the near future," according to Toyota.
