SmartCap could help save lives

Just how smart can a cap get? The SmartCap, it seems, was developed for miners where it is able to monitor a driver’s brain waves for signs of fatigue, followed by relaying a warning signal to the computer display in a vehicle to recommend the driver to pull over and get some rest. Currently, trials of the hat have proved to be successful, where it is able to reduce the number of fatalities for drivers at CRC Mining from 40 in 2007 to 27 in 2008. CRC aims to see this technology make the jump to drivers everywhere in the near future.
