Innovations with Ed Begley Jr. is excited to announce that it will feature SmartCap Technologies (SmartCap) in an upcoming episode of the series, airing fourth quarter 2016 via Discovery Channel. Dates and show times TBA.
In this episode, viewers will learn about the technology behind SmartCap, which was founded in 2008 to address the limitations of fatigue monitoring technologies within the mining industry. Today SmartCap is used by some of the world’s biggest companies and has expanded far beyond mining.
The show will educate about the wearable fatigue-monitoring tool for vehicle drivers (or operators) of heavy vehicles, and will go-behind-the-scenes to show how the technology provides real-time measurements of fatigue, based on direct physiological measurement, rather than estimation via measures of related symptoms.
“At SmartCap we recognize the quantum of fatigue-related risks in our busy lives. Many lives are lost due to fatigue related incidents on a daily basis, primarily due to the lack of awareness of the risks related to fatigue, as well as a reliable tool to manage fatigue” said Dush Wimal, SmartCap Technologies CEO.
He continued, “By incorporating dry contact EEG (Electroencephalogram) technology, patented circuitry, and sophisticated algorithms into a wearable, SmartCap has revolutionized the fatigue management space. For the first time in human history, we are able to accurately measure alertness and fatigue, thereby eliminating microsleeps.”
“SmartCap was developed during a time when available technologies were not predictive and reliant on lag indicators to generate alarms once a person had fallen asleep,” said Michele Nehls, Senior Producer for the series. “Unlike other technologies, SmartCap is predictive and does not require post processing or live monitoring of data to provide real-time operator alerts. We are excited to share this information with our viewers.”
SmartCap is a predictive, wearable technology that measures an operator’s alertness by measuring brain activity whilst operating equipment. By utilizing EEG combined with proprietary fatigue algorithms, SmartCap provides operator fatigue alerts as the risk of a microsleep is identified. SmartCap allows operators to proactively manage their own fatigue to make sure they and those around them get home safe each and every day.
