Car Manufacturers Step on the Gas to Provide Health, Wellness & Well-Being Features Due to COVID-19

September 12, 2020NuVinAir® Blog

While COVID-19 has elevated car buyers’ need for health, wellness and well-being (HWW) features, many manufacturers were already focused on the health and wellness of consumers well before the pandemic.

Last year, Ford developed an electrocardiography reader that can monitor a driver’s heart through sensors in the seat as well as glucose levels for those with diabetes. In 2019, with the use of biometric technology and infrared cameras, automobile manufacturers were able to anticipate drivers’ mental and health levels and adjust the interior of the vehicle accordingly. For example, sensors can now detect if a driver is experiencing road rage or drowsiness. The interior cabin space can then be automatically adjusted to accommodate the drivers’ condition. For instance, if the auto sensors detect that the driver is stressed via a tight grip on the wheel or rapid breathing, the vehicle can respond with a personalized mood burst designed to ease the anxiety. This might include lemon-scented aromatherapy through the ventilation, changes in temperature and changing to calming music on the stereo. Similarly, if the car senses the driver is sleepy, it might change the environment to include more upbeat music and a cooler temperature, with a burst of fresh peppermint smell.

Now, with COVID-19 pushing a heightened urgency toward thinking about health, wellness and well-being, manufacturers are frantically attempting to implement even more HWW aspects into automobiles. Car makers are currently focused on developing self-cleaning, smart materials for the interior of vehicles. They are also focused on providing vital sign monitoring.

While car manufacturers are trying to figure out what HWW features consumers really want and need, there is one company that sits ahead of the curve on HWW -- NuVinAir.
