Mitsubishi’s using AI to save distracted drivers from themselves

There’s no doubt that self-driving vehicles will play a huge part in our automotive future, but until they do, ensuring that human drivers stay safe on the road remains the top priority for car companies. Japanese manufacturer Mitsubishi Electric, one of the Mitsubishi Group’s many subsidiaries, reckons more can be done to keep a driver’s focus on the road, so it’s developed a new technology that can detect when someone is distracted or feeling tired. In what’s believed to be a first in the automotive industry, Mitsubishi Electric is using machine learning algorithms to analyze vehicle data (like speed and steering) and driver behavior (heart rate and the orientation of their head) to predict possible actions. The technology constantly compares “normal driving” to its algorithmic prediction of what is appropriate,…
