SmartCap Technologies is expanding into the US trucking market. SmartCap’s wearable technology prevents microsleeps by providing accurate fatigue measurements in real time to operators and drivers.
“We are confident that we can transform the American trucking industry, making it safer and significantly reducing the risk from fatigue both for drivers and the businesses who employ them,” said SmartCap CEO Tim Ekert. “Across a nation as vast as the US, transportation of goods by truck is hugely significant – the industry employs millions of drivers and generates hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue each year.”
“By eliminating microsleeps, our real time fatigue technology eliminates the number one cause of driver accidents in the workplace,” Ekert pointed out.
