CB_ Toyota Researching Heart-Monitoring Cars_06.17_v4

Toyota has begun researching heart-monitoring cars to prevent crashes. Heart attacks and medical emergencies while driving can be devastating and fatal, so Toyota is looking toward incorporating new technology to predict such events and bring the vehicle to a safe stop.

Digital Trends says, “Of course, with self-driving cars expected one day to rule the road, there would be no need for such technology. But with the widespread use of autonomous vehicles still a ways off, Toyota’s plans could prove an effective interim safety measure to prevent injuries (and potentially worse).”

Toyota’s team has been working with Kayvan Najarian, director of data science at the Michigan Center for Integrative Research in Critical Care, to develop this system. The system is thought to be algorithm-powered and able to monitor and predict cardiac events.

There are many challenges that the system developers still face; however, the work on this system is a step in a positive direction to help prevent injuries and fatalities from medical emergencies while driving. Learn more about it here.
