The new technology that Hyundai is developing will send the emergency services the specific details of injuries suffered by vehicle occupants in an accident.
The Korean manufacturer, in collaboration with artificial intelligence (AI) specialist MDGo, is working to reduce delays in incident response by giving dispatchers a clearer idea of exactly what help is needed.
The system will use built-in sensors to quickly collect and analyze data after an accident and then send the details to the emergency services within seven seconds of the incident.
The technology is based on an AI program that you will learn by comparing the predictions you make with the diagnoses made by medical professionals, through a process known as “iterative improvement.
Before the technology is deployed in customers vehicles, Hyundai says the results of its research can help create safer and more robust crash structures.
Hyundais innovation director, Young-Cho Chi, said: “We expect a significant improvement in vehicle emergency medical services in the short term, while our long-term goal is to provide innovations in passenger experience in vehicle safety using new technologies that enable real-time physical monitoring.
Vehicle safety and incident response are playing an integral role in Hyundais product development scheme.
The Elevate concept, unveiled at this years Consumer Electronics Show, envisions a four-legged ambulance-style response vehicle that could enable paramedics to quickly access hard-to-reach accident scenes.
