Driver-Side Doctor Diagnostics
Asthmatic or allergy prone? Diabetic? Have heart issues? Ford is working on technologies that will build health monitoring capabilities into its cars. The vehicle would be able to display pollen counts through its Sync system when tethering to a smart phone, or to display glucose levels from a Bluetooth-enabled monitoring device. The car maker is also working on technologies that build heart sensors into the driver's seat, which could give the driver early warning of heart problems.
