Vigilance Detection Hat / Life-saving

Vigilance Detection Hat
Vigilance Detection Hat

The "Vigilance Detection Hat" presents a method for the prevention of accidents due to driver's fatigue driving in high-speed rail. Worn on the head, the Vigilance Detection Hat is used for getting the level of driver's vigilance (Alertness, Drowsiness and Sleepiness), then warning the driver when he or she isn't in the level of Alertness. The Vigilance Detection Hat also informs train dispatchers of the level wirelessly to keep everything running safely. Driver is required to take measures to cope with some emergencies such as stone, people and animal on the rail. Thus it is necessary for driver to use the hat to keep themselves energetic.
