Hi I am working on a new product that would be a Steering Wheel Cover that would have technology to alert the driver if he or she was falling asleep. I want to get some feedback about the product and any general comments would be awesome!
Heres a product description:
Problem:One of the largest safety issues for drivers is that they are scared that they might fall asleep at the wheel. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration nearly 100,00 police reported crashes occur each year due to “drowsy driving.” 60 % of adult drivers claim to have driven a vehicle while drowsy. Driving drowsy and falling asleep at the wheel can be dangerous not only for the driver,but for everyone around them. This “drowsy driving” is a serious problem that leads to a numerous amounts of deaths each year.
Solution:Our solution to this problem is to create a steering wheel cover that implements technology that will alert the driver when they are nodding off.Our product uses grip sensor technology and facial recognition software integrated in a way that is more cost effective and the convenience of a steering wheel cover allows it to be integrated in to any sort of vehicle, of any make,model, or year.
