Seeing Machines Limited (LON:SEE) has said it is planning to launch a fully supported, integrated driver monitoring system (DMS) kit on an automotive development platform (ADP) made by technology corporation Qualcomm Inc (NASDAQ:QCOM).
The AIM-listed firm said the DMS will support its full-stack DMS solution on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon ADP, targeting integration into either infotainment or centralised advanced driver assistant (ADAS) systems.
The kit includes an optimised DMS reference camera, an ADP interface board and Seeing Machines software, and is expected to be available before the end of the current calendar year for use by tier one suppliers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
"As timeframes continue to tighten for automakers to deliver safety technology and increase convenience features into new vehicles, this collaboration is very timely, giving customers new ways to implement our leading DMS technology into their infotainment or ADAS systems and quickly achieve both of these key goals”, Seeing Machines chief executive Paul McGlone said in a statement.
"Seeing Machines recently launched our embedded product strategy and this collaboration is representative of our e-DME strategic pillar in action. We are delighted to be expanding our work with Qualcomm Technologies, a world-leading technology company, to reach more of a fast-moving and maturing market", McGlone added.
Shares in Seeing Machines jumped 5.4% to 4.4p in early deals on Monday.
