Posted September 26, 2016 in Events, Hoana Medical, Sensor and Communications Systems

Active Wellness™ 2.0 seat offers the first biometric sensing system that does not affect the comfort or visual aspect of the seat, ensuring the physical and emotional well-being of drivers and passengers.

Imagine a connected, adaptable, and predictive driving experience coupled with a strong focus on safety, well-being, and comfort. The automobile industry is undergoing a technological revolution focused on enhancing the well-being of drivers and their driving experience.

Hoana Medical, Inc., a spin-off from Oceanit, and Faurecia Worldwide, one of the world’s largest automotive suppliers, will demonstrate the Active Wellness™ 2.0 seat at the 2016 Paris Motor Show from September 29 to October 16. This state-of-the-art automotive seat transforms the driving experience by measuring the driver’s biological and behavioral points through embedded sensors and optical devices. Using Hoana’s uniquely designed sensor technology and advanced proprietary algorithms to measure heart rate and breathing rhythms, this data is then used to provide measures to counteract drowsiness or stress to enhance the driving experience. This second-generation smart seat is an example of how the cockpit of the future will transform the driving experience through occupant monitoring and data management.
