Nextium cutting-edge technologies applied in InPercept project

Nextium by IDNEO is part of the innovative InPercept project (Intelligent Sensing for autonomous and connected vehicles). This consortium is formed by leading companies in the Spanish automotive sector (Ficosa, Cap Gemini Engineering, Datik, Hi Iberia, Inelmatic, Nommon, Orim).

Mainly, InPercept sets a number of ambitious goals related to intelligent sensing for vehicles and its application:

  • Obtain new external sensing systems to improve the detection of environmental elements in demanding conditions.
  • Implement an in-vehicle sensing system for driver and occupant monitoring, as well as in-vehicle and external HMI systems.
  • Develop advanced positioning and connectivity technologies for cooperative sensing and driving.
  • Deploy AI-based algorithms and models for vehicle decision-making.
  • Create data management and new ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems) functions to improve road safety.
  • Demonstrate the positive impact of this developments in complex Smart Cities and Fleet Management use cases

Nextium by Idneo’s role within InPercept focuses on advanced in-vehicle sensing technologies and vehicular communications.

Among the in-vehicle sensing technologies is the implementation of a monitoring system for the cabin, the driver and occupants. This technological solution is based on radar systems and makes it possible to monitor the driver’s condition and fitness to drive. The system collects vital patterns (breathing and heart rate), as well as other cognitive information, such as drowsiness levels.

Moreover, regarding vehicle connectivity, 5G C-V2X technology will be made available for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication. The units provided will be equipped with advanced cybersecurity techniques and precise geolocation. In addition, it will deliver vehicle circulation data to Smart Cities.

InPercept is subsidized by the CDTI and supported by the Ministry of Science and Innovation.
