In 2017, 161 Western Australians died on our roads. 26 of those people were in car crashes caused by driver inattention, 27 were fatigue related. This technology can help ensure you are focused and awake on the road.
The DFM-LV is a non-recording invisible infrared (IR) camera system that monitors the drivers eyes to detect when the eyes are closed, or not looking at the road ahead, providing LED visual indicator and loudspeaker audio warnings of drowsiness or inattention when driving.
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 device 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 nighttime. It comes with an angled bracket for mounting on the steering wheel, this can be adjusted easily to suit the driver. Power comes from a 12/24v harness supplied with the kit.
