What’s more, our pioneering software has been developed with rigorous privacy compliance in mind, so customers can rest assured that their personal data is always in safe hands.

Passenger Sensing

Our sophisticated YouX platform detects and analyzes a passenger’s behavioral patterns and physiological indicators from the interior cabin using the existing vehicle sensor suite. Over time, the system learns to understand and predict a passenger's personal preferences and optimizes the in-car experience accordingly, maximizing comfort and safety.

Passenger Awareness

Engineered to respond to social behaviors, physical gestures and emotional cues, our next-generation technology reimagines the way we interact with our vehicles. Intelligent, interactive and highly personalized, our YouX software immediately detects the presence of passengers and responds with a unique, multisensory automotive experience.
