Hannover Messe 2015 - Fraunhofer IDMT presents Micro-Sleep Alerter and Eyetracker

10.04.2015

At this year’s Hannover Messe, being on April 13th until 17th, Fraunhofer IDMT will present two new tools at the Thüringer Gemeinschaftsstand (common booth of Thuringian enterprises run by the Thuringian Ministry of Economy): the new version of the Micro-Sleep Alerter which recognizes when the driver has a micro sleep, comes with improved algorithms and hardware; the Eyetracker, a system for 3D monitoring of a person’s line of gaze, which can be used for a wide range of diverse applications.

Unlike other driver fatigue monitoring and warning systems, which usually analyze vehicle data and based on this recommend the driver to rest (by displaying a coffee cup symbol, for example), the Micro-Sleep Alerter by Fraunhofer monitors the driver by video based analysis.

If the driver keeps his eyes closed for longer than a half of a second, the system turns out an acoustic warning and the integrated LED changes its color from green to red. Similar to a GPS device, the Micro-Sleep Alerter can easily be installed and used by the driver.

I-R-P Computer & Prüftechnik Vertriebs-GmbH, located in Nuremberg, is currently preparing the mass-production of the first generation of the Micro-Sleep Alerter, which is expected to be placed on the market in summer 2015 as a device for being pluggable in any vehicle.

3D Monitoring of a person´s line of gaze

The second tool to be presented at the Hannover Messe, the Eyetracker, allows 3D monitoring of a person’s line of gaze. The Eyetracker detects the contours of individual pupils and analyzes the movement of the eye in real time. The system needs no calibration and works completely contact-free. The Eyetracker can be used for a wide range of diverse applications – for example, in medicine (for diagnosing eye diseases or as a surgical assistance system), in driving (for integrated use with driver assistance systems), or in various research areas (market research evaluating the effectiveness of sales promotion campaigns, for example).

Visitors may feel free to actively test both the Micro-Sleep Alerter and the Eyetracker at the Thüringer Gemeinschaftsstand (booth F34), which is located in Hall 4.

Im Focus: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
