TU Award winners are determined by a panel of high-level experts and are chosen based on four criteria: innovation, industry engagement, user experience and market updates. Eyeris and the other 10 winners in different categories were chosen out of a field of 400 nominations.
The award was announced at the TU-Automotive Awards ceremony on June 6, 2017 and presented to Eyeris Founder and Chief Executive Officer Modar Alaoui.
"Eyeris is grateful to TU-Automotive for this award," said Alaoui. "We are thrilled to be included in this prestigious list of winners within the automotive industry. Winning this award further validates our grand vision towards transforming the in-cabin experience of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles; not only through added safety with our driver monitoring AI, but also through added comfort and ambient intelligence for all occupants inside this third living space."
In selecting Eyeris, the TU-Automotive judges called out Eyeris "because they are at the cutting edge of where the commercial vehicle industry is going." The judges continued by stating "...Eyeris driver & occupants monitoring AI really stands out in the wide range of driver monitoring tools out there."
