A pair of companies are working on a device that checks a driver’s blood-alcohol level through the skin.
Takata, a Japanese company unit with its U.S. base in Auburn Hills, Mich., and its partner, TruTouch in Albuquerque, have received a $2.25-million grant from the Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety (ACTS), an industry group, to make the device commercially viable.
The two companies are working to make its current breadbox-sized device that uses an infrared sensor to determine alcohol level small enough, cheap enough and unobtrusive enough to be put on the car’s start button, said Kirk Morris, Takata’s vice president of business development.
