Volvo introduced optional cameras for the driverJanuary 3, 2019
Volvo says it will use them for anonymous research of people’s reactions and health monitoring, but a number of Western publications called them “spy”.
In the modern world you will not surprise anyone with cameras, even those installed in a car. At a minimum, modern DVRs can shoot in front of the car, behind it and in the cabin. When reviewing a new car, journalists can look at several cameras at once, what to speak of bloggers taking a camera even to the kitchen. However, all shots remain at home, which cannot be said about the new cameras from Volvo, aimed at the driver.
Volvo Digital Technology Director Atif Rafik announced that cameras will be available as an option over the next 12 months. “They will be able to identify low blood sugar, fatigue or other health problems, and if necessary, inform a loved one and the hospital.”
Volvo intends to use the camera as a security system that monitors the behavior of the driver. Based on what the camera sees, the car can take advantage of various features (to cheer up, turn on soothing music, warn about fatigue, turn on additional functions of automatic piloting, and so on).
Another function of the cameras can be the driver’s face recognition system, which will relieve owners of all sorts of keys, and also allow you to automatically apply the saved settings.
