Detect driver presence by touch or camera for autopilot check

If the autopilot is enabled the driver has to move the steering wheel slightly to show that he is still present. This is super annoying and outdated. I think it is even dangerous to move the steering wheel because it might disable the autopilot and change driving directions i.e. in curves if you move it too far.

There are already solutions where it is enough to just touch the steering wheel instead of moving it in a lot of german cars. You could even combine this with the in cabin camera to detect where the driver is looking at to ensure he is paying attention to the street instead of his phone or his kids on the backseat.

This would be much more convenient and up to date.

Driver presence can be detected by the weight of the person sitting in the driver seat. But driver active attention probably needs the camera.
