KEEP­ING YOU AWAKE

WOW (Women on Wheels) - - WOW -

Fa­tigue when driv­ing is a ma­jor is­sue, es­pe­cially when it comes to truck driv­ers. Ac­cord­ing to the In­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary Ac­ci­dent Re­search Cen­tre in South Africa, driver fa­tigue is one of the main causes (41%) of truck ac­ci­dents. Thanks to a com­pany called See­ing Machines, this num­ber may drop. Its prod­uct con­sists of a cam­era that mon­i­tors the driver and can de­tect closed eyes and dis­tracted glances. If it de­tects fa­tigue, it will alert the driver by alarms and vi­bra­tions through the seat. The fleet owner will also get an SMS. For more info, con­tact MasterDrive on 011 867 4778.
