Saving lives is our priority
Driver fatigue is a major issue across many industries. At SmartCap we want every person to go home safely each and every day. By predicting when an operator is at risk of a microsleep and alerting them prior to a potentially fatal event, SmartCap provides peace of mind.
SmartCap measures an operator’s brain activity and calculates their level of alertness. SmartCap is a predictive solution that utilises electroencephalography or EEG combined with patented technologies and specialised fatigue algorithms. SmartCap allows each operator to proactively manage their own fatigue by providing alerts in real time. SmartCap is used all over the world as part of a comprehensive fatigue risk management plan.
SmartCap was developed to overcome the limitations of fatigue monitoring technologies. Available technologies were not predictive and reliant on lag indicators to generate alarms once a person had fallen asleep. There were also problems with the size of the machine, versatility and the number of false alarms. SmartCap was developed using EEG (electroencephalography), the gold standard in sleep science. EEG has been used for more than 70 years and is unaffected by glare, humidity, head turns, eye disease or behaviour. Unlike many technologies SmartCap is predictive and does not require post processing or live monitoring of data to provide real time operator alerts.
