Fatigue is inevitable. Incidents Aren't.


Manage Driver Fatigue with Instant Fatigue Detection Technology 

A driver fatigue monitoring system is used to detect the onset of sleep, and provide a means to mitigate and manage the risk of driving tired.

Caterpillar’s driver fatigue management technology uses advanced proprietary face and eye tracking algorithms to monitor eye-closure duration and head pose to detect fatigue and distraction. Hands-free, non-intrusive technology, the Driver Safety System (DSS) provides a best-in-class driver fatigue management solution that delivers instant, real-time intervention before accidents can occur. 

Comprised of a sophisticated driver facing sensor and infrared pods, the DSS works the moment a vehicle is turned on. When the DSS detects a fatigue or distraction event the operator is immediately alerted through configurable in-vehicle seat vibration and / or audio alarm.

The Driver Safety System, a driver fatigue detection technology by Caterpillar is fully supported with an expert team of fatigue consultants, education programs for operators, supervisors and management, as well as a 24/7 Fleet Monitoring Centre. Together, these teams help worksites manage driver fatigue risk and encourage tired operators to speak up.
