Ford and MIT Team Up To Improve Safety by Reducing Driver Stress
Date:12/30/2009

could be engineered into future Ford vehicles.

"Increasing human-vehicle connectivity through biometrics may provide the next major breakthrough in vehicle safety and lead the development of aware vehicle systems," said Bryan Reimer, an MIT AgeLab research scientist working on the project.

A white paper describing the conceptual framework for a vehicle-based safety/wellness platform and results of studies on detection systems was released today by the MIT AgeLab (http://web.mit.edu/agelab/MIT_AgeLab_wellness_platform.pdf).

The MIT AgeLab develops new ideas and technologies to improve the quality of life of older people. Coughlin said that "we have a unique opportunity to use new technology to help people live not just longer, but better across the lifespan." AgeLab's multidisciplinary team of engineers, psychologists, designers, clinicians and social scientists have been conducting research on wellness and wellbeing to better understand behavior in key areas including health, financial planning and driver safety.

Commitment to innovation in safety and security

Two crucial parts of the overall driver wellness package are safety and security, and Ford maintains a leadership position in both areas.

As the flagship vehicle in the Lincoln lineup, MKS will provide MIT AgeLab researchers a rolling test vehicle with leading-edge driver-assistance technology. With innovations such as BLIS(®) (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support, MyKey((TM)), Voice-Activated Navigation and SYNC(®), Ford Motor Company is equipping its vehicles with innovations that not only creat
