We developed SmartCap to overcome the limitations of fatigue monitoring technologies. Available technologies were not predictive and reliant on lag indicators to generate alarms once a person had fallen asleep. There were also problems with the size of the machine, versatility, and the number of false alarms.
Our wearable technology was developed using EEG (electroencephalography), the gold standard in sleep science. EEG has been used for more than 70 years and is unaffected by glare, humidity, head turns, eye disease, or behaviour. Unlike many technologies, our products are predictive and they do not require post processing or live monitoring of data to provide real-time operator alerts.
In 2021, SmartCap was acquired by Wenco International Mining Systems, a subsidiary of Hitachi Construction Machinery.
