New Technologies for safer driving

ITCL Technological Center leads a European project that seeks to improve driving performance and reduce accidents among professional drivers through 4.0 technologies.

ITCL leads a project to minimize driving risks for professional drivers

The system will create neurophysiological models capable of detecting the appearance of an abnormal physical state in drivers, based on data obtained from IoT devices during work, on-board intelligence and smart tachographs .

ITCL leads a project to reduce risks to professional drivers

The new tool will monitor and evaluate driving performance, cognitive load, physical fatigue, and reaction time.

Artificial Intelligence improves road safety

A new research project has been launched at MDH. Through a cloud-based IoThings AI system, current information about the driver’s condition is communicated, partly to the driver themselves but also to the community.

With Lucía Sivertsen

The start of the FitDrive project announced at the local Swedish radio
