Saving lives is our priority
Most people are aware of the dangers of driver fatigue but our ability to recognise the signs diminishes as we become more fatigued. The team at SmartCap is committed to safety and ensuring that everyone gets home safely each and every day. We believe that ultimately each and every person is responsible for managing their own fatigue so SmartCap is designed to ensure that individuals are empowered to make this possible. Through alerts, reports and profiles each user will know when they are at risk and the times of the day that their risk is greatest. SmartCap helps to develop techniques to effectively manage fatigue and alarms to ensure your workforce is safe.
SmartCap was developed to overcome the limitations of fatigue monitoring technologies. Available technologies were not predictive and reliant on lag indicators to generate alarms once a person had fallen asleep. There were also problems with the size of the machine, versatility and the number of false alarms. SmartCap was developed using EEG (electroencephalography), the gold standard in sleep science. EEG has been used for more than 70 years and is unaffected by glare, humidity, head turns, eye disease or behaviour. Unlike many technologies SmartCap is predictive and does not require post processing or live monitoring of data to provide real time operator alerts.
SmartCap has been independently validated by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) and Austin Health Institute of Breathing and Sleep (IBAS). Field validation has been completed by participating SmartCap customers, and analysed by experts from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Chile.
What does this mean?
SmartCap has been independently lab-validated and field-validated by experts, and proven to effectively and accurately measure an individual’s ability to resist sleep.
