Scientists from the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Spain) have learned to determine how aggressive the person is driving a car. System was developed to detect signs of aggression behind the wheel.
Estimated external signals: speed, rapid acceleration, the use of headlights. The method showed excellent results. In the future its use will help to reduce the number of accidents on the roads.
Previously, scientists used physiological parameters (respiratory rate, heart rate, stress level) of the human body to determine his level of aggression behind the wheel. The method was objective, but inconvenient for motorists themselves.
Experts suggest to embed the tracking system driving style in smartphones. The device will indicate too high a speed, which may help to reduce the number of crashes and casualties on the roads.
