The demanding hours and late night drives that are required of truck drivers make falling asleep at the wheel a common concern, which is why Ford's SafeCap, a tech-infused hat, is helping drivers avoid these dangerous situations.

The SafeCap tracks the wearer's head movements, alerting the driver to get off the road if it senses the individual is beginning to fall asleep. The integrated technology will send an alert should it sense the wearer's head is resting at a particular vertical, or horizontal axis for an extended period of time. The vibrating alert coupled with the visual alert is enough to ensure the driver takes the appropriate precautions before continuing on their journey.
