How a Toyota could one day detect and prevent collisions caused by heart attacks

As if the superior safety record and industry-leading reliability isn't enough of a reason to invest in a new Toyota, the brand is working on revolutionary new technology that will work to prevent motor accidents caused by heart attacks.


Toyota partnered with the University of Michigan to create a system that can detect and intervene when the driver is going to have a cardiac event. The biggest hurdle is getting accurate results from such a small device which uses an algorithm that can consider road noise and magnetic interference that hospital equipment wouldn't have to deal with.


With the predicted prevalence of self-driving cars in the next 10 years, we wouldn't be surprised if this life-saving idea comes to fruition. You can learn more about Toyota's innovative safety systems currently available on its vehicles via the video below, which explains Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P). Feel free to stop by the Sloane Toyota Glenside showroom to test drive a TSS-P-equipped model, as well as to learn more about the technologies coming down the pipeline from Toyota.
