Interesting thought. We may be a few years away from it becoming mandatory equipment. The cost of the technology would be prohibitive in economy cars right now. Right now the option costs $1200 in a Ford and $4300 in a Toyota. if your buying a $20,000 car that tech bumps asking price almost 25%If this technology could really save a lot of lives simply because of preventing asleep at the wheel accidents, it should almost be mandated that all cars have it. Just like how seat belts were once an option, and then they became mandatory.
This sounds kinda creepy. How does the air system track your neck and head movements? And how does the car respond? Does it blast cold air at you, or start releasing caffeine into the air or something?I don't remember which manufacture it was but I want to say it was Lexus. They have a feature in the central air system where if it detects irregular motions from the drivers head and neck it would generate something in the air to keep the driver from going in to fatigue.
Interesting... So it makes you uncomfortable somehow to keep you awake? Need more details on this feature I'm not sold that this even exist.The way it works is through a sensor on the dash that it facing the driver to detect movements. Not exactly sure what it does to the air that comes out from the vents but it keeps the driver alert and awake for safety. sounds crazy though.
