To Stop Distracted Driving, Researchers Monitor Drivers

Car companies have already deployed distraction-tracking systems, mostly to ensure drivers remain attentive when their car is in semi-autonomous mode. Cadillac’s Super Cruise system, for example, tracks the human’s head position with an infrared camera. Other automakers are considering eye-tracking systems that know when a person’s actually watching the road, but the Waterloo team hopes to leapfrog past that solution.

Scientists Have Created a Super-Thin Fabric That Harvests Energy From Our Movements

The mechanism responsible for the fibre’s generation of electricity is surprisingly simple. A mesh of carbon atoms rolled into tubes 10,000 times thinner than the width of a human hair makes up the fundamental fibres of the complete filament.
