MIT AgeLab research scientist Bryan Reimer was interviewed by CBS Boston for a segment that aired last night. He discusses how cars can sense physiology by monitoring pulse, heart rate and more. Research assistant Hale McAnulty gives the news correspondent a "test drive" in Miss Daisy, the AgeLab's driving simulator to demonstrate. The data collected could then be translated to inform the driver if he or she is not fit to drive. This may assist an aging population, allowing people can stay safe behind the wheel, longer.
