In the near future a car will notice when its driver is stressed and offer a small breather before the next appointment. After all, the car can measure the driver's pulse and knows their diary. It sets ups interior lighting, sounds and even scents in such a way that the driver and passengers are optimally relaxed. This means that in the not too distant future cars will become the mainstay of a balanced and, at the same time, active lifestyle. After all, with the data from other devices and services in the Smart Home as well as from wearables they have a complete overview of all vital data of the person.
The topic of connected health from a strap to the dashboard is one of the trending topics at this year's CES electronics exhibition in Las Vegas. The market for so-called wearables alone will amount to 48 million items sold and a turnover of 5.5 billion dollars, estimates the organiser, the Consumer Technology Association.
The best example was the "Inspiration Talk" on this topic at the Mercedes-Benz booth, which was moderated by technology veteran Guy Kawasaki.
