A semi-simplicial object is like a simplicial object, but without degeneracy maps. In Set it is a semi-simplicial set.
For $\mathcal{C}$ a category or (∞,1)-category, a semi-simplicial object $X$ in $\mathcal{C}$ is a functor or (∞,1)-functor
from $\Delta_+$, the wide subcategory of the simplex category on the injective functions (the co-face maps).
One may try to formulate semi-simplicial types in homotopy type theory. See the discussion at (IAS).
As opposed to the simplex category $\Delta$, the subcategory $\Delta_+$ is a direct category.

Coq-code for semi-simplicial types in homotopy type theory had been proposed in
but its execution requires augmenting homotopy type theory with an auxilirary extensional identity type, discussed in
