Built Ford Tough. Well, it looks like Ford is taking its slogan closer to heart, by developing a car seat that monitors your heart rate. The new car seat uses six sensors that are embedded on the surface of the backrest. These sensors detect the electrical impulses generated by the user’s heart before passing the data to the control unit that records and interprets the electronic rhythm of your heart beat.
The seat was developed by Ford and Rheinisch-Westfalische Technische Hochschule (RWTH) Aachen University and is still receiving tweaks and tune ups here and there.
