Cipia, an AI computer vision in-cabin automotive solutions provider, will present at CES 2024 Cabin Sense, which includes both driver and occupancy monitoring, and is expected to go into serial production during 2024.
Cipia will present its embedded product code optimized for the Nvidia Drive Orin system-on-a-chip (SoC), leveraging the automotive-grade processor’s powerful compute performance to support in-cabin sensing capabilities, alongside additional safety and convenience functions.

Cipia’s Cabin Sense solution is flexible and can accommodate a variety of automotive-grade compute platforms, and is designed for integration on standalone ECUs, as well as ADAS and IVI domain controllers. Nvidia Drive is the first platform on which Cabin Sense will run commercially.
The Nvidia Drive Orin SoC delivers 254 trillion operations per second and is a central computer for intelligent vehicles. In addition to powering in-cabin applications, it can also support highly automated and autonomous-driving capabilities, scaling from Level 2++ to Level 5.
Tal Krzypow, VP Product and Strategy at Cipia, said: “We’re excited to bring the latest technology to the in-cabin sensing market, evolving beyond driver monitoring into the next phase: full cabin monitoring. Combining both driver and occupant monitoring on the same SoC and sensor contributes to a lower cost for the system as a whole and promotes wider and faster adoption in the market. Tapping the proven Nvidia Drive compute platform is a natural choice to introduce these capabilities.”
“The automotive industry is increasingly moving toward the use of generative AI and large language models in vehicles,” said Rishi Dhall, VP of Automotive at Nvidia. “Cipa’s in-cabin sensing software running on Nvidia’s robust accelerated compute hardware offers automakers and tier 1 manufacturers a system for creating smart, safe and delightful experiences inside the car.”
