Early WarningFATIGUE + DISTRACTION MONITORING SYSTEM
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 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
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

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 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.

VEHICLE START-UP SCANNING
On each vehicle start-up, the DriveAlert+ monitor will scan the driver’s eyes and facial features to recognise any future changes related to fatigue or distraction.
24/7 BACK-TO-BASE MONITORING
All incidents will be continuously recorded, stored online and reviewable afterwards, except for urgent incidents which will be alerted and attended to immediately.

COACHING AND REINFORCEMENT.
DRIVECAM ONLINE® IS YOUR KEY TO DRIVER RISK MANAGEMENT SUCCESS.
Proprietary predictive analytics, combined with expert video review, highlight the causes of poor driving and prioritise actions needed to reduce fleet risk and operating costs.
Information is available in a high-level format, as well as allowing for one to drill down and pin-point exact areas of concern.
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.
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
