TSB award

The Advanced Textiles Research Group and Plessey Semiconductors Limited have recently been awarded TSB (Technology Strategy Board) funding to develop an automotive driver heart-rate sensor system which aims to improve road safety. Real time analysis of data will enable the monitoring system to take early action to prevent a driver from falling asleep at the wheel and, in the case of commercial vehicle operations, transmit the data over a wireless network to a control centre for automated monitoring of driver wellbeing. Here is a link to existing Plessey technology:
