CanControls X Epicnpoc

CanControls and EPICNPOC announce a collaboration to boost intelligent cockpits with a user monitoring system.

After delivering many projects together for major OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, CanControls and EPICNPOC are collaborating to deliver a user-in-loop system with advanced driver and cabin monitoring functionality. Through video-based features such gaze, facial behavior, heart- & respiration-rate and body-posture estimation, the system will be able to assess the user’s psycho-physiological state and to predict her/his manual, mental and health readiness to drive, addressing the need for intelligent and adaptive road safety products.  This innovative system will incorporate the major trends and new regulations in Advanced Driving Assistance Systems and autonomous driving.

The goal of the project, called ADAVEC, is to productize an authority transfer management feature to mediate transitions between manual and autonomous driving modes for highly automated vehicles, combining a driver-monitoring system with cockpit domain controller features.  The synergy of CanControl’s expertise in AI image understanding and EPICNPOC’s user-oriented software enables the emergence of a smart cockpit with an ultra-personalized and contextualized user experience in addition to ensuring safer driving.

“Smart products need to learn and adapt their behavior according to the way users are interacting with them. By combining the driver monitoring features provided by CanControls with the Cabin Manager functions developed by EPICNPOC, our two companies are paving the way to create intelligent cockpits for tomorrow’s vehicles.”

Pierre Sigrist, CTO of EPICNPOC

“It is a stroke of luck to be connected to EPICNPOC so we can demonstrate our technology to a wide audience. With the BOWL Software Suite you can easily create and evaluate live experiences with a WOW-effect without the overhead of dozens of experts for construction, production, design, programming etc.”

Ulrich Canzler, CEO of CanControls

his collaboration will be showcased in the BOWL® development tool demonstration at the EPICNPOC booth at Car HMI Europe from June 19 -21, 2022 in Berlin, Germany.  For more information on the event, visit
