Products in development
Thursday, April 03, 2014 by Chris Hocking
Optalert has a number of wearable technology products currently under development, including two new lines for the eagle early-warning drowsiness detection system. These products will all have the potential to be used with Optalert's Fatigue Risk Profile capabilities. Assessing data collected by the system over time, users will be able to determine their most 'at risk' times of the day and improve individual performance via a cloud-based hosted web service.
This lightweight early-warning drowsiness detection device will be designed for use in vehicles and will be a similar size to a small smart phone. Users can carry the lightweight device with them when travelling and it will be suitable for transfer between vehicles, as it will use a temporary mount. The eagle PORTABLE will provide a visual display of a person's drowsiness levels at all times and audio warnings when at high risk levels. It will be charged while in use and will be compatible with Optalert's wireless glasses - coming in 2014.
Worn on the wrist, the eagle PERSONAL will be lightweight, compact and able to determine the drowsiness levels of users while in motion. Suitable for ambulatory workers, the eagle PERSONAL will provide a visual display of a person's drowsiness levels at all times and audio warnings when the user is at high risk levels. The eagle PERSONAL will be compatible with Optalert's wireless glasses – coming in 2014.
eagle WIRELESS GLASSES
Using Optalert's existing technology and connected wirelessly to any of the eagle products, these glasses will monitor a person's drowsiness levels by measuring the velocity of the operator's eyelid 500 times a second using a tiny invisible LED built into the frame. They will connect via Bluetooth to Optalert's early-warning drowsiness detection technology and will be compatible with existing eagle products – coming in 2014.
