Sensing when drivers are distracted

Vehicle safety and intelligence business SmartDrive Systems has launched SmartSense, a line of driver-assist sensors for waste and recycling vehicle fleets.

SmartSense for Distracted Driving includes inattention triggers that detect when eyes are off the road for a defined period or if a driver has exceeded a specific number of distracted incidents.

Purpose-built hardware with infrared sensors captures distraction even when sunglasses are worn, and in-cab alerts sound when distraction occurs.

When combined with the SmartDrive’s extended recording capability, SmartSense offers fleet management a complete picture of what led to driver distraction, how it manifested and what the outcome was, enabling detailed feedback and then training to improve driver safety.
