The Augmented Intelligence Team recently won the Australian Trucking Association’s FatigueHACK event with it’s Smart Steering Wheel which monitors drivers’ heartrate through ECG devices, this way instead of a driver getting too tired to drive and having to push through it until they find a place to park, they will get a warning 30 minutes in advance that they will reach that level of fatigue. This will allow them to better plan what to do and stop for a break before they reach this level.
Augmented Intelligence is a group made up of entrepreneurs and health clinicians from Canberra and Brisbane. By winning the award they will not only receive a cash prize – $6,000, they also have the right to work the idea through with the CBR Innovation Network over the next year.
