F1 drivers to wear biometric glove sensor in 2018

Published

on

Formula 1 drivers will wear a bio-metric sensor in their gloves from 2018 F1 season.

Austria’s Osterreich newspaper said the FIA wants to be able to monitor life saving data thanks to a three millimetre sensor sewn into a glove.

Initially, the sensor will monitor the driver’s heart rate and oxygen in the blood, which will allow the governing body to know how the driver is in the case of a serious crash.

“For a little information, you can deduce quite a lot from it,” said medical car driver Alan van der Merwe.

“You can change what you are doing in a rescue scenario based on that one metric.”
