Mind Reading Technology in Ferrari Cars!

Autocar reports that, Ferrari is working on an in-car technology that will monitor a driver’s mental and physical state and adjust the car’s stability and traction control systems to suit.

The unit will have a cabin housing with various biometric and psychometric sensors for recording and transmitting the values of a number of psychophysical parameters of the driver. The sensors would be mounted in the cabin ceiling, dashboard, steering wheel and driver’s seat area.

The biometric sensors may comprise a piezoelectric measuring device for measuring the driver’s respiration, a device for measuring the driver’s blood pressure and heart rate, a television camera for monitoring the driver’s eye blink rate to determine the driver’s alertness, a device for monitoring the electric activity of the driver’s brain, a device for recording the driver’s surface temperature and a device for recording the conductivity of the driver’s skin to determine the degree of perspiration.
