EYE & FACIAL MONITORING

Through the use of infrared sensors, the driver’s
facial expressions and retinas are monitored to
detect the early onset of fatigue.

REAL-TIME DRIVER ALERTS

An audio alert followed by a voice prompt to notify drivers of their fatigue levels.

EARLY WARNING SERVICES

Alerts are sent via SMS or telephonic, warning fleet owners to take preventative action.

FATIGUE MONITORING

Sleepiness and driving is a dangerous combination and can be just as fatal as drunk driving. Just like alcohol, sleepiness slows driver reaction time, decreases awareness and impairs judgement, increasing the risk of a collision.

Fatigue can lead to:

  • Impaired reaction time, judgement and vision
  • Problems in concentrating and short-term memory
  • Decreased performance and vigilance
  • Increased moodiness and aggressive behaviours
  • Microsleeps and falling asleep

DISTRACTED MONITORING

When considering how much could go wrong when a driver is distracted, the most devastating outcome is not just the collision itself but the potential of a driver fatally or seriously injuring themselves or someone else on the road.

Distraction can lead to:

  • Impaired reaction time
  • Decreased performance and vigilance
  • Increased likelihood of a collision

BENEFITS OF DRIVEALERT+

FOR DRIVERS

DriveAlert+ is an early warning fatigue and
facial monitoring system: alerting drivers in
advance, so that they can take the necessary
precautions.

DriveAlert+ mitigating system technology
accurately detects objects and full head
movements, which results in less bad
driving habits and less distracted drivers.

FOR FLEET OPERATORS

DriveAlert+ helps fleet operators understand what is happening in their fleet and address risky driving
behaviours before a fatality occurs.

Through direct risk measurement and our
feedback loop, you can create sustainable
change, build a safer work culture and increase staff retention

Observe and record risky driver behaviours and coach drivers with our easy-to-use business Intelligence dashboard

Optix ensures a holistic safety system is in place, down to revising a company’s HR policies and offering policy advice and escalation paths that satisfy top- level managers and fleet drivers to ensure smooth change management

Our Optix team provide dedicated support with regular check-ins to discuss one’s progress and suggest continuous improvements from a business perspective

HOW IT WORKS

MONITORING EYES AND FACIAL EXPRESSIONS

DriveAlert+ is an advanced early warning system that recognises fatigue and distracted driving by monitoring a driver’s retinas and facial expressions. Incorporating the PERCLOS system (Percentage of Eye Closure), fatigue is detected even before a driver closes his or her eyes. A high-pitched alarm followed by voice alerts are used to ensure drivers takes note of their fatigue levels or their distracted behaviours.

THE PROCCESS

The DriveAlert+ and DriveCam work together in the vehicle to detect fatigue and driver distraction. Upon detection the DriveAlert+ signals an audible and seat vibration alert to the driver, so that corrective action can immediately be taken.

Events are automatically uploaded to the Lytx Driver Safety Program – A cloud-based platform where events are reviewed using Machine Review and Al algorithms.

DriveAlert+ Events are filtered and reviewed by a highly qualified and dedicated team within the Early Warning Centre, which operates 24/7.

The Early Warning Centre will contact the Driver’s Fleet Manager by phoning, email and/or SMS upon detecting a critical event.

INTEGRATED WITH DRIVECAM

By linking DriveAlert+ to DriveCam online – not only are drivers warned about fatigue and driver distractions, but  video clips are also generated for fleet owners to assess the occurrence – whether cell phone use distraction, sleep apnea or other driver distractions.

This service is purpose-built as an active backup for the DriveAlert+ solution and occurs when the DriveAlert+ is triggered a second time within 2 minutes. The video clips comprise of a 12 Second DriveCam video event (8 seconds prior to the trigger and 4 seconds there after – both inside and outside the vehicle).

The event is automatically sent to our 24/7 Early Warning Centre where the video is reviewed immediately to reduce false positives and to ensure the highest levels of data accuracy for reporting purposes.

DRIVER SCORE RANKING

Driver Safety Scores are used to show specifically who and what are the riskiest behaviours in one’s fleet.
This information is used by fleet owners for coaching purposes to prevent future collisions.

COACHING PROCESS

Coach and driver meet and review coaching behaviours (both video and non-video) and mutually agree on an Action Plan to achieve the desired behaviours. Coaching Sessions are then set up, to monitor behaviours.

Frequently asked questions

Will DriveAlert+ detect false positives and cause more distractions?

We have gathered and reviewed an enormous amount of driver data, over 100 billion kilometres, this has led to an in-depth understanding of fatigue and distracted behaviours, which has enhanced the accuracy of our artificial intelligence technology. Our DriveAlert+ only detects and alerts when a definitive fatigue or distraction behaviour occurs.

Is DriveAlert+ a recording device and will it invade my privacy?

In order for a DriveAlert+ to record video footage, the device needs to be linked to a DriveCam.

In respect for a driver’s privacy, DriveAlert+ when linked to a DriveCam, does not record a driver, unless the Artificial Intelligence detects symptoms of fatigue, or distracted driving behaviour, for example eye’s off the road or texting. When a driver is driving safely, there is no need for them to be recorded

Will DriveAlert+ make me look bad as a driver?

The alarm and voice system is designed to help drivers self-correct risky driving behaviour. Managers are not required to intervene unless there are patterns of risky driver behaviours.

I don't need a fatigue-monitoring device

If a driver is driving safely, free from fatigue or distraction, the device will lay dormant and won’t affect the driver in any way. However, if for any reason the driver does become distracted or tired the DriveAlert+ will activate.
