The on-board computer can accurately assess the condition of a person behind the wheel with the help of cameras, sensors and an artificial intelligence-based system: whether the driver is overworked or distracted from the road, and so on. If there are any wake-up calls, the automatic system will stop the vehicle.

The new Bosch system will be available in 2022. At the same time, the European Commission believes that this technology will save more than 25.000 lives and prevent at least 140.000 serious injuries in Europe alone by 2038.

To deal with emergencies, Bosch offers to build a camera into the steering wheel that will constantly track the driver's eyes. The system will issue a warning if the person is not attentive or focused enough.
