Medical monitoring could be part of self-driving cars

Imagine you are driving down the road as you have so many times before. You've always been a healthy person your entire life -- but on this day, you suddenly feel pain in your chest. You hope that the sensation goes away, but it only gets worse as time goes on. Within moments, you are unable to operate your vehicle safely and you get into an accident. The medical emergency you suffered directly contributed to this wreck.

Medical emergencies happen all the time, but in the context of driving, they are even more dangerous than usual. Other people out on the road are suddenly put at risk because of the onset of a medical condition. So wouldn't it be great if this possibility could be eliminated entirely?

It appears that is on the wishlist of many tech companies and self-driving car companies. In the future, we could have vehicles that are capable of constantly tracking our health. If an emergency were to arise, the vehicle could take command of the vehicle and safely guide it to safety without an accident happening. Does it sound like a sci-fi movie? It might, but developers and programmers are trying to make real life like a movie.

Only time will tell if this amazing idea becomes reality. In the meantime, we can only dream. Hopefully improved safety features will continue unabated.
