Caring Cars (EUREKA / MEDEA+ 2A403)
This project is centered in the development of chipsets and middleware for the construction of application and service networks in the automobile. Specifically, sensor networks are used to measure environments factors and data for the driver and the passengers. The usage of these data for monitoring vital data of the driver, and to adapt the environment inside the car will improve the wellness of the driver, thus reducing the risks of an accident. Furthermore, these data can be used to detect health problems, enhance efficiency of professional emergency assistance, and reduce the environmental impact of the vehicle.
