Cat Detect — Driver Safety System

Cat Detect — Driver Safety System

Made for both surface and underground operations, the Driver Safety System (DSS) is a non-intrusive way to manage fatigue and distraction in real time. Inside the vehicle, a smart camera monitors an array of operator inputs, looking for symptoms of fatigue. When fatigue or distraction are detected, the seat vibrates and an audio alarm sounds. This event is also recorded and reviewed by a team of monitoring specialists to determine if additional intervention is required.
