In-Car Mobile Interior Imaging Technology

Intel & Ford have set up a joint research project called Mobile Interior Imaging or Mobii involving the use of inward facing cameras in cars which unsurprisingly link to smartphones.

In their words the research “…explores how interior-facing cameras could be integrated with sensor technology and data already generated within and around the vehicle to create a more personalized and seamless interaction between driver and vehicle that transforms the driving experience.

The Mobii research was a collaboration between Intel ethnographers, anthropologists and engineers alongside Ford research engineers, and incorporates perceptual computing technology to offer a more enjoyable and intuitive vehicle experience.”

Intel who have a vice president, Internet of Things Group Doug Davis, comments “Project Mobii is a great example of Intel collaborating with Ford to help enable a secure, more connected driving experience.”

Lots of potential we think
