In this contribution, a system for unobtrusive acquisition and processing of vital parameters using car-integrated sensors and processing devices is presented for the first time. The system consists of a steering wheel with integrated sensors, sensor processing and wireless communication interface and a portable monitoring unit for wireless data reception, display and interface to the car information system. A great effort is done worldwide to develop technical solutions helping elderly people to keep mobile and thus autonomous, including monitoring vital signs for patients needing continuous medical care or preventive solutions allowing regular health checks. In-car vital signs monitoring is a good approach to solve this problem. This solution focuses on the effective integration of display solutions and few sensors for an improved usability and lowering of the system-related driver's distraction.
