For us, at Ford Trucks, the truck driver’s world can not stop. That’s why we went further and created a cap that faces one of the biggest dangers on the road: sleep.
We mapped which of the trucker’s movements are part of his work routine, and which are related to sleep. Then, we took this study to a software installed in the cap, making it possible to identify sleep behavior to alert the driver with sound, light and vibration.
Through an accelerometer and a gyroscope, the cap analyzes the speed and angulation of head movements. That allows it to identify hundreds of sleep behaviors.
