MIT Study Will Pay Tesla Drivers $1000 To Be Monitored While Driving

Originally published on TeslaMondo.

“A car that’s driving itself needs to know when the driver is able to take control back.” And so MIT will pay about $1k to Tesla owners who are willing to have their cars equipped with a bunch of cameras that monitor not the road, but the driver. They even detect your gaze direction. This layer of internal data is stacked with the car’s external data to form a complete synergistic sandwich and ultimately refine autonomous tech.

So here’s how a Tesla driver can make some beer money:

$1,000 from Tesla for customer referrals.
$1,000 from MIT for study participation.
$200 for referring others to the MIT study.

TeslaMondo thinks MIT will soon move this study to another locale. Attempting to monitor driver attentiveness in the Boston area will result in an error message: “Data not found.”
