Steering Wheel / Fatigue Detection Steering Wheel

Steering Wheel

We designed The Warning Steering Wheel to detect driver's mental condition, through sensing the temperature and giving immediately warning. The outside rim of the steering wheel is implanted with temperature sensing device. The temperature is sensed by holding the steering wheel while driving (touching the steering wheel with hands) . In the central part of the steering wheel, we install an infrared detector as an auxiliary sensor to make the overall temperature measurement more accurate. When driver's temperature drops, vibration and sound will warn the driver step by step so as to reduce fatigue driving and prevent accidents.
