Motion sickness is something that affects many and at a point of time, everybody would have had the experience. As much as 70 percent are affected by motion sickness and Jaguar Land Rover is coming up with a tech to battle it.
Jaguar Land Rover initially started by creating an algorithm to generate a wellness score for each onboard passenger. The score calculates how likely a passenger is to fall sick in a car using biometric sensors. The data is then processed using information collected by motion and dynamics, letting a passenger know they are going to feel sick even before they do!
The wellness score is used to personalise the vehicle’s interior and driving settings and the carmaker is confident that motion sickness can be cut down up to 60 percent. During the development stage, Jaguar Land Rover collected motion sickness data for nearly 24,000 km.
Speaking about the development, Spencer Salter, the Wellness Technology Researcher with Jaguar Land Rover, added, "As we move towards an autonomous future where occupants will have more time to either work, read or relax on longer journeys, it's important we develop vehicles that can adapt to reduce the effects of motion sickness in a way that's tailored to each passenger."
