Fatigue has been identified as a major cause of accidents and incidents. SNC Technologies MineSafeDrive detects and analyses the operator for fatigue before they fall asleep.
MineSafeDrive monitors the driver’s eyes using ‘eye detection’ for abnormal closure, indicating the driver may be overly fatigued. When the system detects abnormal eye closure and in-cab warning alarm is sounded to alert the driver. The system can also notify the control room in real-time. When the driver receives the siren alarm, the driver should stop immediately and have a rest.
Eye Detection and Fatigue Alerts combined ensure accurate information on any vehicle in the fleet. The MineSafeDrive alert can be sent to the control room for any driver fatigue issues with both visual and audible alerts. MineSafeDrive immediately pinpoints the vehicle of concern on a map and logs the event.
MineSafeDrive is speed activated and monitors fatigue from 10km/h onward. The eye detection monitor is always switched ‘on’. Over speed and fatigued alerts can be sent via email, text message, or tweet, anyone.
