Remote Regions Driver Fatigue Monitoring via Satellite
On many remote roads far away from any cellular connection, satellite is the only way to monitor the fatigue, sleepiness and distraction of long distance drivers. WOMBATT can connect most on board fatigue detection systems to our central driver fatigue monitoring centre by satellite, so that wherever your drivers are on the planet, WOMBATT can see them and monitor their fatigue and driver behaviour via satellite in real time.
For example (see below), EyeAlert is a driver fatigue detection system which works by unobtrusively monitoring the eyes and face of the driver for signs of fatigue or lack of attention to the road.
When a driver becomes drowsy or sleepy, EyeAlert sounds an alarm in the cabin, plus sending an alert message to the central monitoring centre via the local cellular network, or if a cellular signal is not available, via the satellite. The device also transmits a photo of the driver’s face to the monitoring centre every time a fatigue or distraction alert is triggered.
