Could ECG biometrics help to prevent serious injury and reduce fatalities on our roads?
Road safety is a key priority for the European Commission (EC) with the news it intends to set out mandated technology safety features in new vehicles to reduce deaths and serious injuries on its roads.
Driver drowsiness and attention is an area of special interest and one we are excited to have an impact on.
B-Secur’s ECG biometric technology offers a powerful tool for monitoring the health and wellness of anyone behind the wheel, delivering key health data insights in real time, based on unique heart rate activity.
This unique activity also serves as a powerful identity authenticator and opens up an array of personalisation opportunities within connected vehicles.
We're attending this year's Car HMi in Berlin, June 27-29, joining our valued partners Analog Devices (ADI) on Stand 12, offering live demos of our technology in action in the automotive space.
Get acquainted with our tech and what we're working on before you go.
ECG Biometrics: Who You Are
ECG (also known as EKG) stands for electrocardiogram. It's a test that measures the electrical activity and rhythm of your heart to demonstrate how it's functioning.
Everyone’s cardiac rhythm is completely unique, which makes ECG a powerful metric to determine identity.
This uniqueness arises from a range of factors, including the shape and size of the heart and its orientation and position within the body.
Unlike first generation external biometrics such as fingerprint, ECG offers inherently more security as an internal metric that is much more difficult to harvest or fraudulently recreate.
