One of the major problems facing the drivers of different vehicles is the difficulty of anticipate and react to the health-related problems that the operator may have.
For this reason, the goal of this project is the development of a simulator system that allows to prevent and/or report states in the machine operator that can compromise the safety of the people. It will detect physical states (tachycardia, bradycardia, hypoxia, hypotension, etc.) as well as psychics (stress, drowsiness, alertness,etc.).
To achieve this, the system will use biometrics sensors, such as breast bands or weareable bracelets to obtain the measures of heart rate or oxygen saturation. But the main sensor we are interested in is a EEG sensor that sends the raw electroencephalography.
The B105 Electronic Systems Lab. as a representative of Technical University of Madrid(UPM) participates with Valoriza in this innovative research project. To develop it we have the support of the Industrial Technological Center (CDTI) and the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.
