SomnoAlert® is a portable, embedded software in a vehicle’s Control Unit with a CAN bus connection. The software analyses existing data in the CAN bus, and data provided by a Lane Recognition System, in order to identify degraded driving performance correlated with drowsiness. The system studies the driving degradation during a set time period and includes an option to characterize each driver.
The system's alarm is generated with information provided by two modules that work with different parameters. The first one, analyses the position of the car in the lane and the second one, steering, pedal and other CAN data. The system currently collects 31 CAN variables.
