The NeuroDrive technology
NeuroDrive is an inside-the-vehicle neurophysiological analysis system of the driver's state.

We measure and analyze the driver's physiological signals, and use these data to derive a system of recommendations for the driver.

What does psychophysiological state comprise?
The types of data we record and why
Electrical brain activity
We record this type of data using electroencephalography (EEG). Drivers wear a special cap with small built-in electrodes, which fits comfortably under the helmet. Brain activity tells us about the driver's attention and concentration levels, skill automation, and track memorization.
Heart rate and heart rate variability
These measurements are taken using an electrocardiogram (ECG). Increased heart rate can be a marker of the body's elevated activity, while heart rate variability reflects the body's ability to adapt to workload and strain.
Muscle tension
Muscle tension is registered with electromyography. This type of signal can indicate anxiety and uncertainty that the driver might be experiencing on some parts of the track.
The precise timing, duration, and number of blinks is recorded with electro-oculography (EOG). The number of blinks and their distribution along the track's distance reflect different attention concentration levels on different parts of the race track.
The driver's breathing allows us to detect which of the track's segments cause difficulty, as well as to evaluate motor automatization during turning – the transformation of the driver's skill from a sequence of consciously executed actions to a seamlessly automatic action set.

The gathered data are analyzed by proprietary machine learning algorithms in order to detect markers of optimal driving performance. Each individual driver's data will be stored on a secure server accessible by a psychophysiology specialist. This specialist will be responsible for developing the most effective training regime for the driver through biofeedback, which is already actively utilized in many olympic sports.

How will the driver benefit from our system?
Performance improvement, better race outcomes
Additional information will help drivers to better understand and to learn from their mistakes ultimately improving their performance and achieving higher competition results.
Access to professional support
Through a personal account the driver can have access to psychophysiology specialists. The specialists can help explain the psychophysiological data and answer any questions the driver might have.
Using biofeedback as part of the training regime
These training sessions will teach the driver to control important physiological activities, which directly influence the race's outcome.
