EKG biometrics innovator B-Secur officially introduced its collection of powerful EKG authentication and wellness algorithms, HeartKey, at the 2019 Pepcom Digital Experience! The technology has potential applications in the automotive and wearable technology. Through partnerships with Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), Cypress Semiconductor and NXP Semiconductors, B-Secur will make this technology available in vehicles, top fitness trackers and smart wear of the future.
HeartKey is built on the premise that an individual’s cardiac rhythm is completely unique just like their fingerprints or iris. It identifies and authenticates users by measuring specific points in their heartbeat.
HeartKey secures real-time health and wellness insights, optimized to provide on-device authentication and wellness information on devices of the future, says a press release.
“HeartKey’s algorithms offer greater security that protects not only our devices and vehicles, but more importantly, our physical health and safety,” said Alan Foreman, CEO of B-Secur. “One of the most flexible and convenient authentication methods available, HeartKey technology also allows users to unlock deep, data-driven insights into their own health and wellness.”
HeartKey also enable users to monitor the muscular and electrical state of the heart in real-world settings. B-Secur’s algorithms can detect potentially dangerous changes in heart rate and rhythm, stress levels, fatigue, respiration and atrial fibrillation.
In the future, B-Secur plans to use the technology in the steering car steering wheels, where it’ll be able to provide identification, access personalized services as well as monitor driver stress, alertness and cardiac conditions to improve the in-cabin experience and potentially save lives.
Wearables with B-Secur will provide early detection of abnormal heart conditions, identify stress and fatigue factors, prevent injury and create personalized fitness goals.
For the workers, smartclothes integrated with HeartKey technology will enable improved health, safety, security and data insights not possible before.
