HiQ helps Trafi create a prototype of a Digital Driving License

HiQ and Great Apes have designed a technical prototype for a Digital Driving License (DDL), together with the Finnish Transport Safety Agency, Trafi. HiQ, with expertise using technology to simplify people’s everyday life, developed the prototype with focus on simplicity and security.

 

The Digital Driving License has two main information security levels: visual security and backend security. The visual security level uses a gyroscope-connected digital watermark combined with continuously animated background that supports interaction to prevent motion capture frauds. User information and image are always up to date, which makes it easier to identify the person. Visual level security can be dynamically altered, and updates can be pushed to the devices if a breach is detected.

“This is a very exciting project and a perfect example of how we can use technology, design and creativity to really simplify everyday life for millions of people”, says Erik Ridman, head of communications at HiQ.

Backend security includes a QR code, where the user can select what information is included in the QR code, as well as a traditional barcode with the same data content as a physical driving license. This means that it can be used in the same situations as a physical driving license by reading the code with a barcode scanner.

After the initial conceptualizing, the first technical prototype was developed. The prototype, which has been further developed by one of Trafi’s partners, is now in the beta test phase.

HiQ & BatteryLoop develop more efficient charging infrastructure

BatteryLoop, a company which gives electric car batteries a second life as energy storage systems, launched an energy storage system in the spring of 2021 which makes it possible, among other things, to build charging infrastructure in places where the electricity grid suffers power shortages. In collaboration with HiQ, BatteryLoop is now developing a digital platform that makes it possible to maximize power in the charging infrastructure. The digital platform enables an estimate as to how long a battery has left to live, thus its economic value in a circular business model.

– It is fantastic that our team is joining BatteryLoop on this journey. Circular business models and sustainability are important to us at HiQ, and it really shows with this project. There is an incredible amount to do to streamline the use of energy in society and this solution is an important contribution to that process, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
