French automaker Renault partnered with five French companies to deliver a concept car that features advanced biometry, energy efficiency, and cybersecurity protection.

Renault and chipmaker STMicroelectronics, software developer Dassault Systemes, telecom carrier Orange, defense firm Thales, and information technology provider Atos developed the H1st Vision concept's various innovations.

Features include electricity-saving vehicle-to-grid bidirectional technology; a "detect and response" cybersecurity system linked to a response center; sensors in the steering wheel that can analyze the driver's mood and health; and biometric detection of the driver's silhouette and face when they approach the vehicle.

The Software République consortium said these innovations would be available in the Renault 5 model, which should go on sale next year.
