Volvo Is Working On a Camera That Monitors Your Vitals While You Drive

- Advertisement -

Volvo has always put driver’s safety at the forefront of their car making efforts and have been developing a new driver-facing camera to further that goal. The nanny-cam style camera will monitor the driver’s vital signs, signaling to the driver or other parties if it detects something unusual.

Talking to Car magazine, Atif Rafiq, Volvo’s chief digital officer, says that among other things, the camera could detect the driver’s glucose levels, and either call a loved one or even a hospital if it detects that something is wrong. The camera will also enable the car to monitor your stress levels on your commute and then take actions to de-stress you.

Facial recognition could also be included

It could also use facial recognition software, similar to Face ID or Android’s Face Unlock, to automatically set your preferred settings for climate control, seating position, and other features.

It could even go further, conceivably by knowing where you are and then setting navigation preferences when you get into the driver’s seat in the morning. Honestly, there are a few viable possibilities with the camera and software, and it will be great to see what Volvo comes up with next.

It’s not ready for release anytime soon

Speaking to Digital Trends, Volvo went on to say that while the camera technology is still in development, it is very much in the concept stages and not slated for release in 2019.

With any camera system, privacy concerns are usually the top priority for users. Volvo says it will make anonymous footage and it won’t be shared, and they reckon that drivers will earn to trust the camera, as they imagine the myriad of other sensors on their health tracking wearables.

i can see other uses for the camera system, such as reminding the driver when there are driving distractedly or even if they look like they are tired to continue driving. That should make some of the safest cars on the road, even more reliable.

So, tell us what you think about the idea. Would you be okay with it? Share your thoughts on the comments section below.
