Blind Drivers Alert

Vibrates when a driver is not looking at the road (headset)

Unprecedented numbers of car crashes are being experienced in Australia, with distractions leading to numbers more than doubling in the last 10 years. Since the introduction of mobile phones, individuals have been more inclined to use their phone while driving, creating a seriously dangerous environment, not only for the driver but also their passengers and those in other vehicles.

The Blind Drivers Alert eliminates the use of mobile phones when driving, with a vibration-motor built into the headset. The headset is to be worn and when the driver's attention and eyes divert from the road, an alarm is set off, reminding the driver to pay attention to the road.
