Situational Awareness
"superhuman-level" sensing of external and internal environments


Cost & Economics
maximizing situational awareness and minimizing "sensing redundancy"


Anytime / Anywhere Autonomous Driving
four-season autonomous driving under any conditions on any road

Graphic of the CANVAS system, external sensing: pedestrian and cyclist activity, vehicular activity, traffic monitoring, road/weather conditions. Internal sensing: emotive and cognitive state, gesture/posture analysis, age estimation, occupant personalization.

Photo and graphic of a human face with positions of the face highlighted to indicate mood of the driver. Face alignment, head pose estimation, eye gaze estimation, expression recognition, body tracking, wearable sensor, voice recognition = inference = angry, afraid surprised, happy, sad, disgusted.
