|In additional to drowsiness, the MR688 devices can also identify events related to driver distraction, such as when a driver is not looking at the road, operating audio or navigation systems and talking to passengers for an extended period of time.
When an event related to driver fatigue or distraction is identified, MR688 immediately sounds an alarm to either prevent the driver from falling asleep or stop with the activity that is causing the distraction.
In parallel, the device captures an image of the instance of fatigue or distraction and transfers the image along with the details of event, including the time, date and exact location of the event to the 3Dtracking platform. In turn, the 3Dtracking platform provides the fleet manager a full view of the event and a configurable framework to take further action, including triggering an immediate alert and conducting an investigation.
This solution for driver fatigue and distraction monitoring is fully integrated with all of the functionality in the 3Dtracking platform and will be available as part of the software’s overall driver behaviour monitoring capabilities.
