Strategic partnership between IEE S.A. and RICOH Industrial Solutions Inc.

Press releases / January 11, 2019

IEE S.A.  and RICOH Industrial Solutions Inc. ("RINS") are pleased to announce that they have entered into a global strategic partnership.  

Autonomous driving is paving the way for an entirely new way of viewing travel where vehicle’s interior will be no longer defined by traditional interior elements. Persons will expect that the car’s interior will be able to provide a variety of travel experiences by transforming into an office or even a living room.

“With these changing consumer expectations, sensing solutions such as hands-on/off detection, gesture recognition, unattended child reminders, vital signs detection, and driver monitoring will start playing an increasingly important role. Consumers will be looking for features that enhance their lives and their driving” says Michel Witte, CEO of IEE.

IEE, a leading provider of advanced automotive interior sensing solutions, and RINS, a multinational imaging and electronics company, will work together on designing and producing unique sensing solutions for in-vehicle applications of tomorrow.

At the Automotive World Expo, held in Japan from 16th to 18th January 2019, IEE and RINS will present their first co-developed 3D stereo camera for in-vehicle monitoring. After the event, this new camera system will be demonstrated to the lead customers in Europe, Asia and the United States.

This innovative stereo camera addresses advanced safety and comfort functions. Seamlessly integrated in a vehicle’s interior, it will help OEMs improve driving experience and overall safety based on a holistic perception of the vehicle interior.

In-vehicle stereo camera is just a beginning of a long and fruitful collaboration between IEE and RINS. For both companies, this partnership holds many exciting future developments in the field of automotive interior sensing solutions.
