Japanese researchers are working with Toyota Motor and parts supplier Denso to develop a car that could warn its driver that a heart attack might be coming. They analyzed electrocardiograms of 34 people who suffered heart attacks or developed ventricular fibrillations while wearing a monitor to record the heart's rhythms; 31 showed a similar pattern 1 to 2 hours before the cardiac problems. The driver's electrocardiograms and pulse waves are monitored via the wheel, and the car navigation system warns of any dangerous symptoms.
