OPERATOR FATIGUE AND DISTRACTED DRIVING MONITOR
The Operator fatigue monitoring system monitors the operator using advanced sensors to determine if the operator is distracted or tired. Using advanced algorithms the unit is able to detect the operators face and monitor his facial features.
Operator Fatigue is a silent killer: Be Alert today and Alive tomorrow.
Fatigue in the mining industry is a deadly and costly combination. Operator Fatigue Monitoring technology helps determine fitness for duty, and protects machine operators and drivers. Reducing the number of workplace accidents, not only improves the health and safety of employee’s, it also helps maximise productivity.
NEXUS is an advanced Fatigue and Distracted driving management system. Designed for industrial applications to improve safety.
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.
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.
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 customised alerts via email when an operator experiences a critical fatigue or distraction related event.
