Industry Overview


The Driver Monitoring System (DMS) has become a priority zero feature for passenger vehicles since the launch of the Euro NCAP's 2025 Roadmap, which proposes the use of DMSs for primary protection from 2020, and the publication of the European Commission Legislation 2018/0145 that makes use of the technology mandatory from 2022. The DMS vendor landscape is currently composed of several small to medium-sized players and startups providing algorithms that range from drowsiness and fatigue monitoring on the low end and cognitive load monitoring on the high end, which require different System on Chip (SoC) power requirements. Most offerings available in the market consist of DMS algorithms running on dedicated SoCs. Nevertheless, an increasing number of vendors have integrated Occupant Monitoring Systems (OMSs) in the same SoC due to the algorithms' similarity, as the Euro NCAP will also reward Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) that offer child presence detection as a standard feature from 2022.
