Driving is a complex activity with the continuously changing environment. Safe driving can be challenged by changes in drivers’ physical, emotional, and mental condition. Population in the developed world is aging, so the number of older drivers is increasing. Older drivers have relatively higher incidences of crashes precipitated by drivers’ medical emergencies when compared to another age group. On the elderly population, automakers are paying more attention to developing cars that can measure and monitor the drivers’ health status to protect them. In recent years, the automotive industry has been integrating health, wellness, and wellbeing technologies into cars with Internet of Things (IoT). A broad range of applications is possible for the IoT-based elderly smart healthcare monitoring systems. For example, smart car, smart home, smart bed, etc., Both luxury automakers and key global original equipment manufacturers are integrating healthcare services into their next-generation products.
Stroke is a brain attack caused by the sudden disturbance of blood supply to that area. The stroke population, as well as the global population, are aging. The chances of surviving from an acute and sudden infarction (i.e., stroke) are much higher if the senior citizens get emergency medical assistance within a few hours of occurrence. This research objective is the successful detection and generation of alarms in cases of stroke onset through IoT, which will allow the timely delivery of medical assistance, to mitigate the long-term effects of these attacks.
