 Car Seat That Identifies Its Driver

Researchers say that a car seat with an inbuilt technology to measure its driver's weight may soon be able to prevent theft.

This avant-garde product developed by researchers at the Advanced Institute of Industrial Technology in Tokyo identifies its driver by measuring the pressure their body puts on the 360 sensors.

Every sensor measures the driver's weight and creates a grid that matches the distribution of the weight.

Once that information is collected it is relayed to a computer, which matches it to the registered measurements and allows the car to be driven, Discovery News reported.

The seat showed around 98 percent accuracy during experiments and the research team is working with car manufacturers to come up with a commercial version of the product in about two to three years.
