Seeing Red? Future Toyotas Will Sense Your Mood
Toyota is working on a mood-sensitive electronics system that’s part safety net, part backseat driver. According to an article on Whatcar.com, the prototype system customizes the safety system’s alert times based on the driver’s mood. And how can it tell what mood you’re in? Cameras mounted inside the cabin are focused on the driver’s position and recognize emotions by interpreting 238 points on the face.
Sad or angry drivers may be distracted or have delayed reaction times, and they may not be able to avoid an accident.
