Monitoring a driver’s ability to safely drive a vehicle becomes a major concern when acute health problems arise. Furthermore, an increase in elderly drivers in the United States necessitates continuous vital sign monitoring for mobile medical support. In the event of a collision, vital signs may be used to triage the condition of drivers and passengers.

LifeWave Biomedical’s small UWB sensor enables off-body physiologic monitoring, making it possible to embed sensors within any vehicle. This allows for a continuous vital sign monitoring for general health assessment and to improve safety.
