Posted by Fundació URVResponsive · Innovative Products and Technologies · Spain

Summary of the technology

The solution proposed uses innovative communication protocols for vehicles and cities: this is a safe and reliable easy-to-use access control system that guarantees user privacy.
Our solution is simpler and more economical compared to other expensive systems based on indiscriminate use of video-cameras recording. This technology conciliates efficiency and privacy.

Description of the technology

This solution follows a clear and intuitive user-case scenario: when a vehicle approximates to a restricted zone, a safe and reliable communication protocolis set-up. This protocol is automatically established between the driver’s phones and a public external checkpoint. If, and only if, the system detects that the vehicle has no entrance rights a photo is taken for later identification purposes. The keypoint of our proposal is that the whole control process is done preserving the driver’s anonymity.
