InterCore’s DADS – the network-based Driver Alertness Detection System –- is now available for purchase at DADS.SRGINT.com.
DADS is a real-time monitoring and warning system that can help prevent accidents caused by driver fatigue, lack of alertness or distractions. DADS, which operates as a cloud-based service, was developed by InterCore subsidiary SRG International Inc.
“We are excited to be bringing DADS to the market with consumer and commercial versions, offering both sectors a simple, highly effective way to detect fatigue and distractions while driving,” said InterCore CEO James E. Groelinger. “The DADS service alerts drivers and dispatchers to unsafe driver conditions to help avert tragedies and disasters on our roadways. It is the first solution that provides advance warnings of fatigue for all drivers – commercial fleets, mass transit operators, commuters, young drivers, and everything in between.”
The DADS service uses sophisticated technology to assess three stages of alertness in drivers. The system captures important information from users with an approved Bluetooth camera linked to a smartphone. When the DADS service detects reduced driver alertness that could lead to unsafe vehicle operation, the system alerts the driver using audible and visual signals. DADS also sends appropriate notifications to third parties, such as dispatch centers.
DADS generates these alerts up to two hours before a driver’s alertness diminishes to such a dangerous level that sleep could occur. The early warnings provided by the DADS service provide ample time for proper preventive action to be taken, thereby averting accidents, protecting property, and saving lives.
InterCore Inc., based in Delray Beach, Fla., is a public company focused on the commercialization and deployment of DADS and related products through its wholly owned subsidiary SRG International.
DADS uses proprietary alertness detection technologies based on an algorithm that was developed in correlation with the electroencephalogram (EEG).
