Mobis wants to take immobilized drivers off the road, autonomously

According to Korean producer of automotive parts Hyundai Mobis, each year around 7,000 North American traffic fatalities are caused by drivers ceasing control of a vehicle. Looking to limit the damage, it is working on an autonomous system that would recognize when a driver is no longer in control and guide the car to safety.

Mobis’ Departed Driver Rescue and Exit Maneuver (DDREM) system is meant for use when drivers can no longer control a vehicle. This may occur as a result of them falling asleep, having a heart attack, or otherwise becoming incapacitated behind the wheel.
