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:
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.
