MIT AgeLab's Bryan Reimer was quoted by author Benjamin Preston in Consumer Reports

...There is strong evidence that camera-based driver monitoring works, says Bryan Reimer, who heads up the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Advanced Vehicle Technology Consortium, an academic-industry partnership supported by Consumer Reports.

“The AVT Consortium has been collecting naturalistic data from vehicles with and without camera-based driver monitoring systems for several years,” Reimer says, adding that camera-based monitoring systems, paired with escalating inattentiveness warnings, help shorten the amount of time distracted drivers take their eyes away from the road. Reimer called for camera-based systems in Level 2-equipped vehicles last year, and he says the principles highlighted in the Alliance’s statement are a good basis for improving motor vehicle safety.
