|Peugeot to Build NSA Spy-Cam Cars|

French auto manufacturer PSA Peugeot Citroen will install National Security Agency (NSA) spy-cams in all their vehicles. Spy-cams can download emotional responses of drivers and issue 'NSA Anger Alerts' if drivers appear frustrated with traffic jams.
According to GizMag, "Ever experienced road rage? Someone cuts you off while you’re trying to merge and next thing you know you’re tailgating them like a NASCAR driver at Fontana trying to get a slingshot off the bank. Then they hit the brakes … "screech-crash-bang" … there goes your platinum rating with the insurance company. What if an on-board emotion detection system could tell that you were getting annoyed and intervene? PSA Peugeot Citroen has teamed up with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) to develop an emotion detection system designed to recognize signs of irritation and fatigue in a driver’s facial expressions."
Peugeot is a firm believer of snitching on angry drivers and is calling for global legislation to install NSA spry-cams in all cars. This would help the NSA to spy on road rage.
As reported by GizMag, "Technology and software for reading facial expressions has been used widely in applications from and depression to market research and brand development. Now researchers at EPFL’s Signal Processing 5 Laboratory (LTS5), who specialize in facial detection, monitoring and analysis, are exploring applications for the motor industry."
Peugeot also plans to install infra-red cameras in their vehicles to upgrade its NSA spy-cam technology.
