Fatigue and distracted driving monitoring solution with an audible alarm that increases in volume and frequency to force a driver to take note of his dangerous fatigue level and stop the vehicle before a possible collision or to redirect his attention from any distraction.
The ability of a driver to self-assess his fatigue level diminishes as he grows more tired. A vast number of accidents are the direct result of fatigue and driver distraction, placing a burden on the transport industry, already under strain of a challenged economy.
DriveAlert is linked to DriveCam online – now it not only warns the driver, but also generates a video clip for the fleet owner to assess the occurrence – whether cell phone use, sleep apnoea or other driver distractions. Linked to our Early Warning service, real time alerts via SMS or telephone, (severity dependent) will timeously warn the fleet owner enabling preventative intervention.
DriveAlert recognises fatigue and distracted driving by monitoring a driver’s retinas and face.
Using the PERCLOS measure of alertness, it detects fatigue even before the driver closes his eyes. The unit looks like a camera, but incorporates a high-end infrared camera, microprocessor, memory modules and alarm system.
