Hyundai Mobis develops path-breaking ‘brainwaves’-based ADAS tech

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 31 Jul 2021


Hyundai Mobis has announced development of a world-first ‘brainwaves’-based ADAS technology, called 'M.Brain'.

Following three years of R&D, Hyundai Mobis says it has succeeded in developing M.Brain, a new healthcare technology based on brainwave measurement and applicable tp the automotive industry for the first time. Among other bio-signals, brainwave measurement is known to be one of the most advanced and challenged technologies to work with.

M.Brain measures the driver’s condition on a real-time basis by detecting the brainwaves around the ears through earpiece sensors that are worn. The key is the software technology that analyses and determines the data from the brainwaves. Hyundai Mobis says it adopted machine learning to interpret the brainwave signals.

M.Brain can also be interworked with a smartphone app and provide notification that the driver is losing attention. The accident prevention technology also provides for different sensory organs, such as sight (LEDs around the driver’s seat), touch (vibrating seat) and  hearing (headrest speaker).

Hyundai Mobis plans to conduct tests of M.Brain in Gyeonggi-do’s public buses first, and subsequently expand the application scope of biotechnology to smart cities and purpose-built vehicles (PBVs).
