English in Medicine 1: Pratical ExtraUnit 8: Artificial Passenger

Artificial Passenger, the device mentioned in this weeks Practical classes is a real machine.

It is a telematic device developed by IBM that interacts verbally to reduce the likelihood of a vehicle operator falling asleep at the controls. The Artificial Passenger is equipped to engage a vehicle operator by carrying on conversations, playing verbal games, controlling the vehicle's stereo system, and so on. It also monitors the driver's speech patterns to detect fatigue, and in response can suggest that the driver take a break or get some sleep.
