Israeli startup, CorrActions has built a driver monitoring system that is able to detect the driver’s cognitive state and has today announced that it has raised a strategic investment from Volvo Cars Tech Fund. The company has stated that the target round is $6 million.  

The idea behind CorrActions is to use sensors that are already built into the car to monitor the driver’s micro muscle movements.  

These movements can reflect brain activity that CorrActions’ algorithms can then evaluate to check if the driver is tired, distracted or intoxicated. 

The company currently works with the data gathered from steering wheel sensors and pressure-based sensors, as well as motion data from apps used by fleet managers to communicate with their drivers.  

The company was founded in 2019 by Elad Hochman and Zvi Ginosar, the company has previously raised $2.7 million seed round in 2021.
