Next-Generation Solution for Inattentive Driving

June 10, 2021
Omnitracs has launched SmartSense for Inattentive Driving+, which detects and proactively notifies drivers when they are distracted or drowsy.

Omnitracs has launched SmartSense for Inattentive Driving+. Its integrated cab-facing cameras and sensor employ AI and computer vision to detect suspected sleep, drowsiness, cell phone usage, smoking, and general inattention, alerting drivers to take action to avoid a collision.  

SmartSense for Inattentive Driving+ detects and proactively notifies drivers when they are distracted or drowsy, providing immediate in-cab feedback for fleets large and small. The solution leverages AI and sensor data identify inattention based on head position, eye lids being open or shut, and direction of eye gaze, phone use, etc. Utilizing technology from SmartDrive, which was acquired by Omnitracs in 2020, this intelligence is rooted in a 20-year history of training and informing sensors using insights and data from 300+ million analyzed driving safety events and 30+ billion driving miles across all transportation sectors. 

Using two cameras built into a single unit, the solution provides complete visibility of the entire cab and details of the driver’s face, eyes, and hands to identify drowsiness, sleep, phone use, cigarette use, seatbelt use, and other safety-critical behaviors.

Wide-angle and zoom-in views provide context, so detection can be tied to the overall safety program, aiding in determining if there are systemic issues that need to be resolved, i.e., lack of sleep due to a medical or family issue.
