If you are so interested in these technologies, rather than advocating for someone else to do something why don't you actually make something for aftermarket installation? At least as a proof of concept prototype if not actually for sale to the public.

I don't know. The table saws I linked to earlier can tell the difference between damp wood and a finger before its cut off (which is pretty impressive to me honestly).
I suspect the conductivity of seawater would make similar detections of human limbs challenging but I'm not savy to the possible engineering.
