As Poslovni Dnevnik/Sergej Novosel Vuckovic writes on the 6th of January, 2020, GlobalLogic, an American company that has an office in Zagreb, has developed a piece of very interesting technology known as GLOface, which also has the ability to detect possible illnesses based on an analysis of drivers’ facial symptoms.
GlobalLogic, an American-owned software development company specialising in product engineering, which also has an office in the Croatian capital city with about a hundred employees working there in total, has developed GLOFace, a solution it says recognises driver problems while driving, just by analysing their faces.
For example, GlobalLogic’s new innovation recognises signs of fatigue on the human face and informs the relevant services when needed, it is even able to detect the possible symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, all based on the analysis and ultra modern recognition technology of the driver’s face.
“GLOFace identifies characteristic symptoms, such as facial asymmetry, grimaces which are done in pain, or ticks. If detected, the competent services, such as the emergency services, are notified immediately,” a statement from GlobalLogic said.
The director for Croatia, Vladimir Kosanović, says that GlobalLogic’s impressive new GLOface technology also offers functionalities that can help prevent traffic accidents. “All drivers are exposed to health risks, and this is especially true for professional drivers such as truck drivers.
”If they, for example, lose consciousness for some reason, that could lead to fatalities,” he said.
This amazing new solution offers us a new chance to develop and apply biometrics in the automotive industry, such as verifying driver identity or personalising car settings based on the driver’s face, as it has improved a recognition algorithm that more effectively identifies an individual.
