No More Falling Asleep at The Wheel

If you’ve ever felt too tired to drive, then soon your car might be able to tell you to take a nap before you get behind the wheel.

Major auto makers are testing technology that would determine if a driver is too tired or too distracted to drive safely, reports the Wall Street Journal. This technology could be available as early as next year.

These artificial intelligence systems would help to offset the auto industry’s push into connected car features that some researchers say could contribute to distracted driving.

Automakers who are testing these systems include General Motors, Toyota, and Volkswagen.
