Nissan's Pivo Car Monitors Driver Mood

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

One thing about Nissan's Pivo is that it's more than just cute. It's supposed to make driving safer.

Nissan says drivers are less likely to have accidents if they have a little robot telling them to take it easy. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
