Bosch Testing AI System for Monitoring Driver Fatigue, Distraction

» Posted February 5, 2020Resources | Share This Post

Artificial intelligence is already changing the way that we live and work. Now machine learning may also be ready to overhaul the way we drive by making it safer to get to and from a destination.

German engineering company Bosch is testing an artificial intelligence system that it says will be able to monitor drivers for fatigue and distraction. The technology draws on a series of cameras to keep an eye on drivers and facial recognition technology to catch signs that the person behind the wheel is tired or does not have their mind on the road.

If the car knows what its driver and occupants are doing, driving will become safer and more convenient,” Bosch official Harald Kroeger said in a prepared statement touting the new technology. “Cameras and AI will turn the vehicle into a life-saver.”

Meanwhile, artificial intelligence is already at work in virtual new and used car lots. Cars.com says it is using AI to help connect car buyers with the vehicles of their dreams.

Safety Issues, Legal Rights

Although artificial intelligence appears to have the power to help prevent accidents and protect everyone on the road, there are still plenty of reasons for drivers and passengers to be concerned. That is because a wide range of vehicles are recalled every month because of serious defects that make them unsafe.

Fortunately, car owners in California have some legal rights and protections. The state’s lemon law requires a car manufacturer to perform certain repairs on vehicles while they are under warranty. If a manufacturer is unable or unwilling to make those repairs, it is obligated under the law to buy back the vehicle. That means compensating the owner not only for the purchase price, but also financing costs and other expenses. The manufacturer also has to pay any legal fees that a car owner incurs enforcing his or her rights under the law.

The lemon law allows a carmaker to offer instead to replace the vehicle, but it is up to the owner to decide whether to take that offer. Because there is no specific number of repair requests or attempts that must be made before the law kicks in, it is important to consult an experienced California lemon law attorney.

Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

"I was blown away at how fast the settlement wrapped up. I was told about 8 months to a year for success, but Brian Wagner and his supporting team did a fantastic job, perhaps 6 months ahead of schedule. From my initial consultation with Erika, her assessment of my case, including the assigning of Mr. Wagner as counsel, the stress reducing assurance of paralegal Andy Kim, and the personable approach of Melanie, who eased my anxiety with her confidence and support in reception of my calls. Great job team!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
