Toyota invents the steering wheel that detects a heart attack

The Japanese car maker is developing a new pre-crash safety technology. The system can take control of the steering wheel in an impact.

The company’s engineers are currently working on a steering wheel with an electrocardiogram (ECG) built in.

A series of sensors are incorporated in the steering wheel and they are capable of recording abnormal heart rhythms via the driver’s hands.

Thus, the car will be able to tell if the driver suffers from arrhythmia, or if he is liable to have a heart attack.

The company has already made a demo at a press conference held at one of the Japanese plants. The information on heart rate appears on the in-car navigation screen.

Toyota is not the only manufacturer to impress with these technologies. Ford is also working on a car seat with a built-in heart rate monitor.

Officials haven’t announced a date when Toyota will release cars equipped with these technologies.
