Driver Safety Solutions uses sensors, alarms and software to watch out for sleepy operators.

Technology company Seeing Machines has partnered with Caterpillar, the globe's leading manufacturer of mining equipment, to roll out the Driver Safety Solutions (DSS), an eye and face tracking technology that monitors driver fatigue.

DSS consists of a set of sensors, alarms and software that monitors a drive's face and facial behavior. The safety solution tracks a driver's pupil size, frequency of blinking and how often and for how long they close their eyes. DSS detects micro sleep as soon as it occurs. It also monitors driver distraction or if the driver looks away from the road. The system works with an accelerometer and GPS chip to confirm that the truck is being driven.
