Details of the Technology Offer

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.
