Loss of attention detector: safety first


Attention loss detector for road safety

The loss of attention detector is a cutting-edge Driver Monitoring System (DMS), meticulously crafted to enhance road safety. Employing a secure suction cup attachment to the dashboard, this innovative device serves as a proactive solution for maintaining driver attentiveness. Its advanced features not only prevent drowsiness but also actively prompt the driver to focus on the road, issuing timely warnings in the face of potential danger should their attention waver during the journey.

An astonishing high-tech device

Equipped with an integrated camera, our system goes beyond conventional monitoring by scanning the driver’s face and analyzing real-time behavior. Whether the driver wears glasses, sunglasses, or navigates through total darkness, our advanced technology remains unfazed.

A sophisticated loudspeaker intervenes decisively when signs of drowsiness emerge, if the driver’s gaze diverts from the road, or if facial orientation shifts sideways—effectively curbing distractions such as smartphone usage. Furthermore, the system detects and promptly addresses the use of a cigarette, ensuring a comprehensive approach to driver safety.

Why should you get it?

1/ To prevent the risk of accidents related to drowsy driving.

The peril of driving while drowsy is underscored by a staggering eightfold increase in the risk of accidents, a statistic that surpasses the risk associated with driving under the influence of alcohol at a level of 0.5g/l, where the risk is merely doubled. Alarmingly, a substantial 62% of drivers admit to grappling with fatigue during business trips on the motorway. In a comparative context, 42% report encountering such challenges when commuting between their residence and workplace—a significant indication of the widespread prevalence of drowsy driving on familiar routes.

For optimal bodily rejuvenation, adults typically need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep each night. Despite this, a concerning 32% of drivers admit to experiencing sleep deprivation, with an alarming 12% disclosing that they have either come dangerously close to or directly caused an accident due to drowsiness-induced impairment in their driving performance.

Significantly, the elevated risk of accidents linked to drowsiness is particularly pronounced among professionals with irregular work hours. This underscores the disproportionate influence of non-traditional work schedules on jeopardizing road safety.

2/ To prevent the risk of accidents linked to loss of attention.

In a digital age where 97% of drivers possess smartphones, a concerning trend emerges with 38% admitting to reading text messages and 24% engaging in texting while behind the wheel. The consequences of such behavior are stark, with the use of phones while driving tripling the risk of accidents and being the direct cause of one out of every 10 accidents. This data underscores the urgent need for heightened awareness and measures to curb distracted driving.

A tool for fleet management

Beyond serving as a driver-alert buzzer, the attention loss detector not only caters to the driver’s needs but also holds significant value for fleet managers due to its inherent connectivity features.

By establishing a seamless connection with a geolocation tracker, such as the Type XX (e.g., Type 2 CLASSIC), the device integrates with GPS technology, discerning whether the vehicle is in motion or stationary. This capability enables the system to adapt its functionality based on these distinct scenarios. The inclusion of a micro-USB port with versatile multi-cables facilitates the connection of additional devices, ranging from LED warning lights to diverse peripherals, like a video recorder for capturing crucial footage.

All events flagged by the attention loss detector are meticulously logged and easily accessible through the Platinum platform, providing a comprehensive overview of the driver’s engagement and potential instances of drowsiness.
