CONVENIENCE, INDIVIDUALITY

By recognizing who is using an appliance, Asaphus enables a convenient and individualized user experience.

Our Vision

At Asaphus Vision, we develop software that promotes the safety, convenience, and individuality of its users. We provide innovative technology for face identification and driver monitoring to the automotive industry. We are a university spin-off and have tight links to the research community.

Our mascot Asaphus kowalewskii is a trilobite that lived around 450 million years ago and features the prettiest eye stalks in the animal kingdom.

Solutions

Driver Identification
Driver Identification

Offering a perfectly convenient and individual driving experience requires cars to recognize their driver. Driver identification allows the vehicle to adapt its settings to the driver, and to limit both vehicle performance and access to personal information for unknown drivers.

The Asaphus Library allows automotive suppliers to integrate driver identification functionality into their driver-monitoring systems. The Asaphus Library can be delivered for any development toolchain and operating system, and for single near-infrared cameras. We optimize the library for specific hardware platforms and provide close support during product integration.

Autonomous Driving
Autonomous Driving

Implementing level 2 autonomous driving safely requires the vehicle to monitor the driver‘s alertness and ability to intervene at any time. For safe level 3 autonomous driving, vehicles are required to monitor the driver‘s attentional state and ability to intervene with limited lead time. Level 4 vehicles need to manage a safe handover from automomous to manual driving.

The Asaphus Library determines the driver‘s head pose, eye state, and eye gaze at high frame rates and with minimal requirements on computational resources. It provides basic building blocks for the most cost-effective, accurate, and highly-available driver-monitoring systems. We customize the library for any optical path, development toolchain, and computing hardware, and provide close support during product integration.

Facial identification provides a line of defense against the theft of delivery and vocational vehicles that is robust against possible negligent behavior of drivers. Driver distraction and drowsiness detection software can help fleet operators reduce the risk of accidents as well as insurance costs. The Asaphus Library can be embedded into existing telematics hardware. The software provides building blocks for the most cost-effective, accurate, and highly-available driver-monitoring and identification systems.

In order to offer the best possible user experience to each individual user, TV sets and other household appliances have to be aware who is using them. The Asaphus Library allows appliances to offer personalized recommendation, settings, and levels of user guidance. The Asaphus Library runs on a wide variety of embedded processors and works under any operating system. It recognizes registered users and tracks their direction of gaze.

By verifying that a breath test is in fact taken by the registered user, facial recognition can improve road safety and eliminate the effort that today is spent on manual inspection of images. The Asaphus Library identifies users quickly on a wide variety of embedded processors and works under any operating system. It determines calibrated identification probabilities and allows the system to adhere to defined false-positive rates. It can be integrated into existing systems that are equipped with a camera by way of a firmware update.

Product

The Asaphus Library is a driver-monitoring and face-identification software that is optimized to deal with all the complex situations that can occur in a moving vehicle.

The Asaphus Library is based on deep-learning technology. It is extremely light, fully self-contained and designed to meet embedded computing costraints. It meets the highest safety requirements.
