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

e a safer and more secure driving experience, but that reduce driver stress and enhance passenger comfort.

Diet, exercise, rest...and a stress-free car

Today's consumers are seeking every edge they can in the pursuit of a healthier and happier life, including diet, exercise and rest. Ford is committed to introducing in-vehicle technology that minimizes anxiety and actively mitigates stress levels so that the vehicle can serve a beneficial role in a human's life like a healthy diet or regular exercise, and ultimately be part of the total wellness solution.

"We believe we have the opportunity to recast the driving experience not as a source of stress, but as a refuge from the daily grind and an opportunity to refresh the driver," Rupp said.

Ford and MIT expect to conclude this phase of the study in July 2010. Findings of the study will be made public shortly after its conclusion.
