KEEPING YOU AWAKE
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.
