Intuitive car technologies are turning somewhat regular by the day, although they still remain exclusive to high-end cars and up-market clientele. Nevertheless, it is always fun to know about groundbreaking car technologies howsoever elusive they may appear to be, and this time around it’s the Ferrari that has come up with a technology that can line up a car’s controls in accordance with the driver’s mood and reactions.
The auto-giant has reportedly filed for the patent of an advanced technology that can monitor drivers’ reactions such as eye movements including the rate of blinking, heart-rate, skin temperature and even the breath-rate. And that’s not all, the technology can measure driver’s blood pressure along with brainwave activities as well, and use the findings to sync electronic controls in a way that brings down the chances of any mishaps to a minimum.
Modern Ferraris are home to advanced stability control systems that throw in a number of control options like on-track driving, regular driving, or a control that puts out all electronic controls leaving the driver with complete authority over the vehicle.
With mood-sensing coming into the fray, collision avoidance measures take over early enough, when required. It will be interesting to see if other big players too step up to the scenes by building on such intuitive features, which most of them have in their armory.
