Current drowsiness monitoring systems regularly sound annoying false alarms. Consumers will never accept this. Automakers that offer accurate, reliable systems will win in the new regulatory environment.
Optalert’s premium drowsiness solution provides the best of both worlds: Enhanced safety with no annoying false alerts. It uses our proprietary Johns Drowsiness Scale (JDS) that directly measures impairment from drowsiness.
European technical services offer testing for GSR and Euro NCAP compliance using Optalert’s JDS
The most accurate algorithm that measures impairment due to drowsiness
Can be integrated into any driver monitoring system (DMS) in days
Only needs one input signal: a driver’s eyelid movements (blinks)
Never triggers false alerts – customers enjoy premium safety with no unnecessary disturbances
Patented JDS measures cognitive impairment, unlike KSS which only measures subjective tiredness
Scientifically validated in laboratories for over 20 years
Commercially validated in industrial fleets for over 15 years
Optalert’s patented drowsiness detection algorithm needs one input signal: the blinks of the driver’s eyelid. It then processes 64 characteristics of this signal to output a value from 0.0 to 10.0 on the Johns Drowsiness Scale (JDS), which spans the full spectrum of drowsiness, from alertness to sleep.
Other drowsiness monitoring systems miss dangerous late-stage drowsiness and only detect signs of sleep, such as microsleeps or head nods.
Optalert’s algorithm detects cognitive impairment due to drowsiness far in advance of these emergency situations. The vehicle can then enact countermeasures that reduce impairment and prolong wakefulness.

Enter your name, email address, and your message, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. You can also upload your files straight away and we will provide you with a comprehensive assessment report.
Data needs to be in CSV file format. You can upload 5 files or 180 minutes of eye-opening data in total for the complimentary initial assessment.
Please ensure that the file contains five distinct columns:
Each row should equate to a video frame and the video frame rate should be 30 fps or higher.
The Report on the first 5 files or 180 minutes of data is complimentary. If you need further assessment beyond the free tier, the assessment is charged at USD$10 per minute of data assessed.
This depends on several factors including the quality and quantity of your submitted data. You should receive your report within 10 business days.
