Nexus Fatigue & Driver Distraction Monitoring System
NEXUS Monitoring Camera
Distracted Driving Detection
Cell Phone usage detection
Operating Temp -20º to 70ºC
DotNetix’s web based clearView solutions shows the individual fatigue levels for each active equipment operator. Additionally, designated supervisors and managers have the option to receive customized alerts via email when an operator experiences a critical fatigue or distraction related event.
Operators are immediately aware when they have become susceptible to a fatigue or distraction event. Upon hearing the audible alarm or sensing the seat vibrator, the operator can take the appropriate action to regain control of their equipment and senses.
Monitoring operator fatigue and distraction allows mining and industrial operators to be more safe and productive but reducing fatigue or distracted operator related incidents.
dotNetix is concerned with machines in ‘mission critical’ applications, where accidents are unacceptable and where safety can be enhanced through monitoring of the human operator, driver or pilot who is ultimately responsible.
Audible alerts are created for the driver while real-time remote alerts can be analysed for fatigued or distracted operators.
A machine-learning algorithm leverages this facial-feature analysis data to-determine whether or not an alert should be triggered. Nexus works in both light and dark conditions, and through prescription glasses or sunglasses.
Upon event detection:
In-cab alarms are activated (speaker and/or seat vibrator)
An event is created and stored locally on the NEXUS Computer
Event data and clipped video are synchronised with NEXUS Integrated Analytics Software Suite
Increases operator productivity
Reduction in incidents and accidents
Increases operator awareness, reducing fatigue related hazardous behaviour for a safer mine environment
Increases equipment availability
Reduces direct and indirect operating costs
Operators are immediately aware when they have become susceptible to a fatigue or distraction event through the Nexus system. Upon hearing the audible alarm or sensing the seat vibrator, the operator is able to take the appropriate action to regain control of their equipment and senses.
Data is communicated to ClearView through the built-in WiFi or external GSM modem. All fatigue or distracted related alerts are sent to ClearView in real-time including an image of the operator providing valuable feedback to the control room.
The built-in GPS provides location information on fatigue events allowing the operator to isolate fatigue related problems.
All communications are real-time where fatigue events are escalated through SMS, Email and Telegram to the personnel that is responsible for safety. This allows further action to be taken and save valuable lives.
