Introducing the Driver Condition Monitor
Jaguar is dedicated to improving the lives of its customers. The company saw a need for helping drivers recognize when they might need to take a break from driving. This is where the Driver Condition Monitor comes into play. This system collects thousands of data points and puts all of this information into an algorithm. This algorithm then determines whether or not the driver is tired. If it comes back positive, then the vehicle will display a cup of coffee and a sound. This alerts the driver that he or she should pull over and get some rest before continuing.
