Toyota is always thinking of new ways to make driving safer. Toyota is currently trying to create a new concept Toyota that can stop safely when the vehicle detects that the driver is having a heart issue. Our team to Toyota of North Charlotte is going to go over these plans and talk about the safety features that our current new Toyota lineup have.
A new Toyota with heart monitoring technology
A lot of car crashes near charlotte and worldwide, are caused by vehicles operator experiencing a cardiovascular problem. Every year there is an increase of the amount of older people behind the wheel. Because of this, there is sure to be more cases of medically related car crashes too.When a person has a heart problem on the road, not only are they in danger, but they are in danger of hurting other people on the road since they usually don’t have the ability to stop their vehicle safely.
But there is good news, Toyota is currently working with the University of Michigan to create technology that can sense when the car driver is going to have a heart problem. Self-driving cars are the way of the future and are rumored to be taking over the N Charlotte roads by 2030. But its rumored that even though Toyota knew this, they think their safe stop cars will be finished by 2020. And Toyota thinks that this 10 year gap is too long time not to implement other tangible safety technology into vehicles on the road that have the potential to save lives.
