MWC 11: Tired Driving
The Anti Sleep Pilot app, which monitors driver fatigue levels in a bid to avoid road traffic accidents, was launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Research from the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute indicates that up to 20% of all traffic accidents are fatigue-related. The app, created for the iPhone and iPad, aims to tackle this statistic.
Using a combination of questions and an algorithm, it calculates driver fatigue levels based on 26 scientifically identified parameters. The driver’s personal statistics are then displayed visually on screen, showing how far they can travel before a break is recommended.
The Mobile World Congress is running from February 14-17.
