Rear View Safety has released the new Vuemate RVS-330 Driver Fatigue Monitoring System. The product is designed from the ground up to address the issue of drivers who get drowsy and fall asleep behind the wheel of a vehicle.
According to a poll recently conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, a full 60% of Americans have driven while they were feeling sleepy at least once in their lives. To make matters worse, a full 37% of respondents actually admitted to having fallen asleep at the wheel one or more times during the past year alone. This points to a serious issue that needs to be addressed at all costs, which is precisely what the Vuemate RVS-330 system was designed to do.
The Vuemate RVS-330 uses the latest in hardware and software to detect when a driver begins to show symptoms of drowsiness. It comes with a single small, compact camera that is mounted to the dashboard of the driver’s vehicle. The lens of the camera faces the driver and is always monitoring for signs that a driver may be in danger of nodding off. Should this situation occur, the RVS-330 will then set off an alarm in an effort to help the driver regain his or her senses and to keep them as alert as possible.
One of the major benefits the RVS-330 brings comes in the form of its intelligent onboard software. A built-in tracking algorithm helps the camera accurately distinguish between the way a particular driver normally looks and the way the same person looks when drowsy. Vuemate and Rear View Safety understand that no two drivers are created equally, which is why the camera needs to be smart enough to differentiate between the way one driver may look when drowsy versus the way another person may look under normal conditions.
Installation of the RVS-330 can be accomplished in moments. After plugging the unit in and mounting it to the appropriate position on the vehicle’s dashboard, the system is ready to go as soon as the vehicle ignition starts. No further setup is necessary.
