VinFast and Vayyar Imaging announced a partnership to enhance driving experience and safety by integrating in-cabin radar technology to the latest VF 6 and VF 7 models at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2023) which runs from January 5 to 8.

The technology helps detect and alert when children are left in the car, ensuring a safer journey for all passengers. Under the agreement, VinFast will integrate Vayyar’s in-cabin 4D imaging radar technology into VF 6 and VF 7 electric SUVs. The Vayyar platform will provide a competitive edge with classification-based Child Presence Detection (CPD) to protect the smallest passengers from preventable hot car tragedies.

The high-resolution platform’s wide field of view makes it one of the optimal solutions, allowing it to cover the entire interior of a passenger vehicle cabin as well as all footwells and the open trunk. It classifies each seat’s occupant, triggering an alarm only if one or more children are left in the car.

Robust in all lighting conditions regardless of line of sight, the technology also ensures privacy by design while preventing false alarms that negatively impact user experience.

In the longer term, both companies are exploring options to expand the partnership to other vehicle models and additional features for in-cabin sensing, as well as a range of lifesaving ADAS applications. — VNS
