Car seat with heart monitor could prove a life-saver

Car manufacturer Ford is developing a car seat for older drivers that keeps a check on their heart. Six small sensors fitted into the back of the seat trace the heart’s rhythm in the same way as an ECG. If a problem is spotted the car could alert the driver and even bring itself to a halt. And vital information could be sent to medical centres via the driver’s mobile phone.
