Rear View Safety, the industry leader in the sale and distribution of backup camera systems and technology, as well as a dedicated road safety advocate, has recently released the MR688 Driver Fatigue Monitoring System to the market. The product, which is designed to alert a driver to situations where driver fatigue and other dangers are likely to occur, has already been embraced in the hundreds by various oil companies for their fleet of vehicles to be used in applications within the oil, mining and gas industry in Indonesia.
The RVS-MR688 Driver Fatigue Monitoring System is designed to not only accurately predict and identify situations where drowsiness and fatigue may be setting into a driver, but also to alert those drivers so that they can pull over to the side of the road and take other necessary steps to insure their general safety and the safety of other drivers.
When the RVS-MR688 Driver Fatigue Monitoring System is installed, a single camera is placed on the dashboard of the vehicle in question with the lens facing the driver’s face at all times. From the moment the ignition in the car fires, the camera is always on and is always monitoring the driver’s face for signs of fatigue. Because of this, it can recognize how a person’s face changes when fatigue begins to set in and will play an audible alert, helping to keep them attentive and focused on the road in front of them at all times.
When you’re driving in an official capacity for a business in the oil, gas and other mining industries, fatigue is a constant danger. These drivers need to work long hours in order to get important products and other materials to factories, job sites and other locations and are constantly working to beat very strict deadlines. As a result, fatigue here is much more likely to occur than it is in a casual driver.
The most pressing danger comes from the fact that the driver may not be immediately aware of just how likely they are to fall asleep at the wheel. Thanks to Rear View Safety and the RVS-MR688 Driver Fatigue Monitoring System, however, they will never have to question themselves again – they will know beyond the shadow of a doubt.
