The idea behind it is to help deal with stress.

Jaguar Land Rover wants their vehicle to know the moods of the person behind the wheel as the automaker has just announced that they are working on a new tech that will be able to detect the mood of their driver. The settings of cabin features such as heating, lighting and ventilation will be altered in response to their facial expressions to help tackle stress.

Research has found that 74pc of people feel stressed or "overwhelmed" every day, whether at the wheel or in the office.

The mood-detection system will use the latest AI techniques to continually adapt to nuances in the driver's facial expressions and implement appropriate settings automatically. In time, the artificial intelligence system will learn a driver's preference and make increasingly customised changes.

Tests to bring similar technology to rear passengers are under way too, using a camera attached to the headrest, which could dim the lights, tint windows, and increase the temperature in the back of the auto if exhausted expressions are detected on passenger faces. Or if the system gets a sense that the driver is feeling too cold, it will automatically raise the temperature on the HVAC system a few degrees.

How much would you like to drive a vehicle that responds to your mood and can reduce your stress?

He adds that thanks to advances in research around personal well-being over the last 10 or 15 years, auto makers can strive with greater success to keep drivers "engaged and alert behind the wheel in all driving scenario".

The company is co-locating electric vehicle manufacture, electronic drive units and battery assembly to create a powerhouse of electrification in the Midlands.

The company is testing a wide range of driver and passenger well-being features, to ensure occupants are as comfortable as can while ensuring the driver remains mindful, alert and in control.

The overall aim of the plan is to induce driver well-being, with the intention of the mood detection capabilities to make driving a positive experience on the inside, away from the stressful roads on the outside. Mumbai for example, spends an average of five hours a day in a auto. Tech like what JLR is building will improve a driver's or passengers over all health. The real question is which one will give us a full bed?
