WATCH: Faurecia shows off Active Wellness car seat to combat driver drowsiness

AmericaJR.com’s Jason Rzucidlo reports from the JW Marriott in downtown Los Angeles for the 2015 Connected Car Expo. In this video, watch for an interview with Matthew Benson, Advanced Innovation Manager at Faurecia. The world’s first vehicle seating system that not only detects the physical and mental status of occupants but also invokes countermeasures to restore travelers to a healthy driving condition.  It then provides a very specific massage pattern, along with air flow through the seat’s ventilation system, either to re-energize a tired occupant or to relax a stressed individual. In operation, the Active Wellness seat reads the occupant’s heart rhythms and breathing patterns, responding with massage, a warming sensation or cooling to restore a healthy and comfortable condition.
