All new vehicles now have Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
Some vehicle manufacturers use sensors, cameras, etc. for driver behavior to trigger alarms.
Some OEMs will display a coffee cup on the dashboard without any other instructions.
When drivers are drowsy and the coffee cup keeps coming up on their dash, many will ignore the signal instead of stopping and most drivers will shut off the alarm.
By using Voice Technology, which interacts with their Telematics triggers can coach a driver to make better decisions and offer up a personal assistant who knows their habits
Accidents occur but using modern technologies we can mitigate them when it comes to distracted driving. Modern vehicles have a myriad of solutions that keep an eye on the road, the handling of the vehicle and even the occupants of the vehicle. Today vehicles can be fully connected and this allows for modern safety and IoT technology to be implemented.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration conservatively estimates that 100,000 police-reported crashes are the direct result of driver fatigue each year. This results in an estimated 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries, and $12.5 billion in monetary losses. We are in a position to reduce this and bring modern technology into play.
New European Mandates for cars, vans, trucks and buses - The EU Commission expects that the proposed measures will help save over 25,000 lives and avoid at least 140,000 serious injuries by 2038. This will contribute to the EU's long-term goal of moving close to zero fatalities and serious injuries by 2050 ("Vision Zero").
