Learn how to manage fatigue with the Driver Safety System, a non-intrusive, in-cab fatigue detection technology that instantly alerts operators the moment fatigue or distraction is identified. The 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.
