Toyota has developed a new technology that can monitor the driver's health and also help to steer cars around obstacles to avoid collisions using Radar and a camera by scanning the road ahead. It mainly focuses on pedestrians as its victim account is more than vehicle occupants. Pop-up bonnet will reduce the risk of injuries to pedestrians. It automatically rises to create a gap between the ‘soft’ bonnet and the ‘hard’ engine components when sensors detect an impact.
Heart attacks or black-outs can cause drivers to lose the control which results in serious accidents. It has developed a system that can monitor cardio-vascular function through the driver’s grip on the steering wheel and help detect any developing problems. If the system predicts a collision, it prepares the car’s settings, such as seatbelts and airbags, to reduce damage and minimize injuries.
