How Does it Work?
The ECG signal is collected from the driver via prototype electrodes on the steering wheel itself. The signal is then captured via an ECG Analogue Front End (AFE).
A high performance AFE is recommended for ECG analysis due to the small signal amplitude at the hands. Typically, the voltages seen are around 0.5 to 2 mV.
The AFE amplifies the signal and filters out noise to isolate the relevant information, at which point the signal is digitised and passed to B-Secur's ECG biometric algorithms.
Key applications are empowered, including:
- Driver ID
- Driver and passenger personalisation
- Vital Signs Monitoring (VSM)
- Health and wellness analytics
