Around the world, driver fatigue is responsible for over 2,000,000 accidents every year with 190,000 fatalities on average. Around 50% of drivers in the UK admit to having fallen asleep at the wheel of a vehicle while it is in motion.
Many accidents tend to be at high speed, often involve fleet drivers and vehicles and take place on motorways and where journeys are longer and visibility in dark conditions is relatively poor.
Drivers are given rudimentary advice such as increasing the volume of their stereos, opening windows and so on to try to combat tiredness on the roads with no real technology available to combat the issue until now.
The device which is smaller than most modern satnav's, is designed to alert and wake drivers just as they begin to fall asleep at the wheel, saving the lives of the drivers and other road users.
