Instant Fatigue Detection

Driver Safety System, Driver fatigue technology and monitoring system to alert mine site operators to a microsleep

Driver Safety System (DSS)

Driver Safety System in-cab monitoring helps keep operators alert and alive

Fatigue and distraction are an inevitable force of nature. Their consequences can be costly, even fatal. Intervene before it’s too late with a driver fatigue monitoring system. The Driver Safety System is a non-intrusive, in-cab fatigue detection technology that instantly alerts operators the moment fatigue or distraction is identified.

Driver fatigue technology works by monitoring eye-closure duration and head pose. If the Driver Safety System detects a fatigue or distraction event the operator is immediately alerted through configurable in-vehicle seat vibration and / or audio alarm.

The fatigue or distraction event detected by the driver fatigue monitoring system is sent to a 24-hour monitoring center to classify and confirm the event. Caterpillar experts will analyze the data and provide customized reporting with site-level recommendations. By cross-referencing fatigue and distraction events against available equipment data, Caterpillar can provide suggestions to improve operational efficiency.

The Driver Safety System is one part of the Caterpillar fatigue solution. For a comprehensive workplace fatigue profile using our technology-enabled fatigue management solutions, contact us about a Fatigue Risk Assessment.

Technology Expert David Edwards explains how the Driver Safety System (DSS) fatigue technology provides instant driver fatigue and distraction intervention for tired operators
