Here’s an iPhone App that keeps you awake while driving!
Falling asleep at the wheel while driving is the cause for nearly 20% of all car crashes and 12% of near crashes according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The accidents amount to 100,000 deaths or injuries each year.
Many of us, Toyota owner or other makes, have experienced drowsiness while driving. While in-car systems that detect potential nodding off at the wheel are available in a few luxury cars, a new iPhone application should help bring a similar solution to masses.
The Anti Sleep Pilot App helps you calculate your fatigue levels and either helps keep you awake or recommends that you pull over to rest. The program works through its own algorithms, with help from your phone’s GPS and accelerometer, to gauge any potential trouble.
HOW ANTI SLEEP PILOT WORKS
Anti Sleep Pilot will learn your driving habits by asking you to complete a short test to determine your personal risks. While you’re driving, the program monitors your potential for fatigue, partially based off duration, your risk profile, and driving data.
To keep you alert, the app will ask you to complete simple tasks, like pushing a button on your phone’s screen. When fatigue reaches critical levels, the program will audibly and visually signal that it’s time to pull over and take a break.
A LITTLE MONEY IN EXCHANGE FOR YOUR LIFE
The app costs a little money, $20, a lot in the world of Apps; but not a lot to perhaps save your life! Anti Sleep Pilot works only with the iPhone 3G and 4 right now. A non-phone version is available for preorder —It’s a small, hockey puck-shaped button that essentially performs the same task. It’s also $20.
