BMW Emergency Stop Assistant

BMW is testing technology to allow cars to stop themselves safely in the event that the driver falls unconscious.

I have long been of the opinion that the approximately 35,000 people killed in traffic accidents each year is unacceptable. That casualty rate is equivalent to having a terrorist attack of the magnitude of the September 11th attacks (~2,752 deaths) each month.

I commend BMW for this innovation and look forward to the day when our cars can drive us all home without fear for our safety.
