Visteon developing camera-based driver monitoring system

Like other automakers, Visteon is working on new technology to catch drowsy drivers before they go into a full-on snooze.

The system uses an IR camera and emitters mounted in the dash to track the driver’s eyes, whether in daylight or at night, to determine where the driver is looking and how wide his eyes are.

From that (and other parameters), the vehicle can tell just how alert the driver is, sounding an an alarm and even vibrating the seat to snap the driver back into reality.
