According NHTSA, more than 2,800 lives were lost due to distracted driving in 2018 in the U.S. alone ( To help prevent serious accidents caused by fatigue, texting, and other distractions like tending to children, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are becoming an essential part of the vehicle’s interior. Driver monitoring systems can assess the driver’s state of mind and focus-on-task, while taking proactive safety measures like enacting an alarm to ensure alertness or pulling the car over to the side of the road if the driver’s eyes are closed. These cutting-edge systems have the potential to significantly reduce accidents as well revolutionize in-the-car comfort by employing gesture controls to help keep eyes on the road or simply adjusting seat and climate control preferences hands-free.

SABIC’s Specialty business can support your team through the material selection process and provide individualized design and engineering assistance to help address the technical needs of driver monitoring systems while maintaining the desired look and feel for a stylish automotive interior. We offer a full portfolio of resins and compounds providing IR transparency, EMI shielding, and superior chemical resistance. We invite you to contact one of our technical centers to learn more about the benefits of our LNP™ copolymers and compounds and NORYL™ and ULTEM™ resins.
