Motion sickness affects over 70% of people. But nausea whilst on a car journey could soon be radically reduced. That's according to Jaguar Land Rover which has created an algorithm that generates a 'wellness score' for each passenger. JLR says this can be used to automatically personalise a vehicle's driving to reduce car sickness by up to 60%. "As we move towards an autonomous future where occupants will have more time to either work, read or relax on longer journeys, it's important we develop vehicles that can adapt to reduce the effects of motion sickness in a way that's tailored to each passenger," said Spencer Salter, Wellness Technology Researcher at Jaguar Land Rover. JLR says it has already collected 15,000 miles of motion sickness data. This will help it work towards minimising the need for steering corrections and therefore the risk of motion sickness while passengers work or relax in an autonomous vehicle. JLR says the findings of the research are already being implemented into further and will help it create personalised cabin experiences for its customers in future vehicles.
