  • Patent number: 11030655
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for presenting content (e.g., advertisements) to vehicle occupants. An image of the occupants of the vehicle is obtained. The vehicle occupants, such as the driver, are then identified from the image. After obtaining the driving history of the driver, which includes any information that indicates a risk posed to the driver in not paying attention to the road, a risk degree of the driver getting into an accident from viewing content on the electronic billboard is assessed. A “watch ability” of the vehicle occupants to watch content is calculated, based, at least in part, on the driver's risk degree. If the value of the watch ability exceeds a threshold value, then the content preferences of the vehicle occupants are obtained which are used to determine the contents to be presented on the electronic billboard which are targeted to the vehicle occupants.
