The Vayyar-integrated cockpit is designed to continuously monitor the vehicle’s interior, locating and measuring passengers’ movement and vital signs, among other data, to improve passenger comfort and safety. Vayyar’s sensor technology is radar-based, which means it operates in any weather and light condition and does not collect visual data. The companies said they completed a successful proof of concept earlier this year.
