Soon, car system that can monitor your health while driving
Washington: Researchers have been working with BMW on a project for their Mini Cooper line called Nigel – the system creates a log using 230 sensors in the vehicle of whatever happens inside.
Researchers from another branch of the USC School of Cinematic Arts - the Center for Body Computing, is on the project as well, hoping to add health monitoring features.
Through a docked smartphone, users can see all of the information Nigel collects, Discovery News reported.
So far, it can tell you things like how often you use your turn signal or when you use your sunroof, which are indicators of your driving habits and temperature preferences.
Leslie Saxon, chief of cardiovascular medicine at USC, told CoExist that she believes this technology could reach a point where pollution sensors, GPS and oxygen content sensors could let drivers know important things about the environment they’re driving in and how it might be affecting their health.
If health-monitoring sensors are added, the system could keep track of things like your heart rate and let you know when that rate changes throughout the day. (ANI)
