An invisible (IR) camera system that monitors and responds to drivers eyes.
In 2017, 161 Western Australians died on our roads. 26 of those were in crashes caused by driver inattention and 27 were fatigue related. This technology can help ensure drivers are focused and awake on the road.
The DFM-HV is a non-recording invisible infrared (IR) camera system that monitors the drivers eyes to detect when they close, or are not looking at the road ahead. LED visual indicators and loudspeaker audio alarms warn of drowsiness or inattention.
In normal operation the device will beep when the power is first applied and will attempt to calibrate the drivers eye position. After 10 seconds the device will beep again and the green LED will flash indicating that the calibration was successful. Thereafter the LED will change to blue then red when the drivers eyes are looking away or are closed. An alarm will sound if the inattention continues for several seconds.
The device is able to see through normal spectacles or sunglasses and operates equally well in the daytime or night time. It comes with an adjustable bracket for mounting to the windscreen or dashboard which can be adjusted easily to suit the driver. Power comes from a 12/24v harness supplied with the kit.
The standard harness includes a digital trigger output lead, this can be connected to the dashcam or telematics device to trigger an Event Alarm, which can in turn alert the office if required.
