Smart Steering Wheel to Monitor Vital Signs While Driving

A Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) and BMW team have developed a smart steering wheel that monitors the driver’s vital signs while driving. “The system, which comprises heart rate, skin conductance and oxygen saturation sensors, displays measured data on the dashboard and could potentially allow the driver to convert time spent idling behind the wheel into a quick health check.” The only contact needed for the health monitoring is the placement of the driver’s hands on the steering wheel sensors.
