Transport Safety

Plessey Semiconductors’ award winning EPIC™ sensor technology has been creating considerable interest with vehicle and aircraft manufacturers as it can be used to provide low cost, reliable detection systems for occupant healthcare safety purposes.

Our Seatback application allows contactless ECG measurement to detect driver or pilot fatigue.

Another embodiment allows determining the occupancy of a vehicle to adjust the ride, handling and air bag deployment depending on the size and location of occupants.

In both cases the EPICsensor electrodes can be easily and discreetly incorporated inside the seat backs to allow acquisition of the necessary biometric data.
