These driver safety solutions will make the roads much safer for everyone. A company called Seeing Machines has paired up with Caterpillar to create a driver-safety solutions platform that will monitor fatigue and stop people from falling asleep at the wheel. Driver safety solutions such as these are important not only for the driver, but for everyone else on the road as well.

(DSS) is an eye and face-tracking system that monitors driver fatigue to prevent accidents. DSS has a set of sensors, alarms and special software that monitors the driver’s face and behavior. The driver safety solutions track the driver’s pupil size, frequency of blinking and how often and for how long they close their eyes. This is the first system like this where drivers don’t need to wear any special gear, the system takes care of everything. It even signals dispatchers when there are potential risks.
