According to official statistics, one can find quite a frightening fact: on average, one in five road accidents in the world caused by drivers who experience drowsiness or asleep at the wheel. In order to prevent this, invented a lot of different devices. But recently experts of the American automaker Ford together with the company's engineers GTB presented perhaps the most high-tech device - a cap, which will not allow the driver to fall asleep at the wheel.
In the first place the headdress for truckers and taxi drivers. That is for those people who spend a "behind the wheel" most of the time, but a device can be useful and ordinary motorists. The cap is equipped with gyroscopes and yet close devices, which detect the position and movement of the head. In addition, there is a special application in the smartphone for synchronization and control device. High-tech cap analyzes the testimony of all devices and if a drastic change in head position or drawing back, the cap begins to vibrate strongly, blink your eyes to the driver built into the visor LEDs and emit sounds, from which the driver awake. This shake-up, not only will not give sleep, but also give energy boost needed to uneventful drive to the parking lot.
At the moment, developers do not call the exact cost of the device and a list of countries where it can be purchased. Ford representatives promise to do the event in Brazil, dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the Ford truck. There will also be produced and demonstration caps in action.
