“Sixth Sense” by Jaguar/LandRover attempts to monitor a driver’s heart rate, respiration and brain activity to identify stress, fatigue and lack of concentration.
The XJ “wellness seat” analyzes heart rate and breathing, has touchscreens that predict which button a user wants to press with fingers mid-air, and has a vibrating accelerator pedal that communicates hazards.
The company claims that its “MindSense” project can determine if a driver is distracted or tired using sensors in the steering wheel. They did not detail the science behind this, but said that their software can amplify a steering wheel sensor captured brain signal and filter background noise. ApplySci believes that a minimal EEG headband could provide much more accurate driver alertness data.
