Eyetracker Device to Help Keep Drivers Awake

copyright Fraunhofer IDMT

It won’t be in next year’s model cars, but there is a terrific new device that could become a built-in standard in the next few years.

According to an article in ScienceDaily, German researchers have developed a system that tracks a driver’s eye movements. If the driver’s eyes close for too long, the device emits a loud warning sound to keep the driver from nodding off to sleep.

The special feature of the Eyetracker is that it can be installed in any model of car. There is no need for a complicated calibration of the cameras…. There is also another benefit: The system does not require a PC or a laptop.

And get this: The Eyetracker is about half the size of a matchbox, and can be mounted behind the sun visor or in the dashboard. This tiny camera system could help save lives by preventing people from drifting off the road as they drift off to sleep.
