What is the DADS System?
The Driver Alertness Detection System (DADS) monitors a driver's state of alertness in real-time to reduce the risk of road accidents caused by drowsiness and fatigue. This new technology allows increased driver performance and safety by analysing biometric data and sending notifications directly to the vehicle operator.
Impact of drowsy driving in the United States.
The Driver Alertness Detection System (DADS) identifies and alerts drivers of microsleeps which provide invaluable early-stage alerts well in advance of dangerous fatigue levels.
In development for more than 10 years, this technology is best in class, and has broad applications for trucking, commercial transportation, as well as individual users.
Driving in a state of excessive fatigue or drowsiness has been identified to be a key factor in one out of five accidents involving death or injury. The National Sleep Foundation has reported that 37% of American drivers have fallen asleep at the wheel in 2013. In Europe and Australia, drowsy driving represents 10 to 30% of all car crashes.
Our proprietary eye behaviour monitoring algorithms are the backbone of our system. They effectively monitor fatigue levels and, with real-time intervention, allow users to take action that can prevent accidents.
