NHTSA Awards Takata-TruTouch $2.25M to Advance World's First Touch-based In-Vehicle Alcohol Detection Device

o develop tools to help intoxicated drivers from operating the vehicle if they are impaired, and to do so in a personal, non-intrusive manner."

The TruTouch technology utilizes an advanced intoxication detection technology that measures a person's alcohol level through the use of infrared light. With TruTouch, a person's BAC is determined when placing their finger on a near infrared sensor that analyzes the alcohol concentration in his or her body. The device can produce accurate results in seconds and has a built-in biometric system to prevent tampering. The ultimate objective is to embrace this advanced technology and develop an automotive solution equipped to combat the global problem of alcohol related accidents.  The Takata/TruTouch products require no user training, and no operator assistance.

About TruTouch Technologies

TruTouch Technologies, Inc. develops, manufactures and sells patented noninvasive biometric alcohol testing systems into both existing and emerging alcohol testing markets. Inspired by the potential to place its passive, durable systems virtually anywhere, TruTouch's vision is to create a world where intoxication is routinely intercepted before it does harm.

Current and future TruTouch applications include:

  • Work Force Safety Systems for testing of on duty impairment by alcohol
  • Medical Diagnostic Systems
  • Alcohol Point-Of-Sale Liability Reduction Systems
  • Law Enforcement Systems
  • Industrial Safety Systems
  • Vehicle Safety Systems
