Sting Newz Desk: A video game that can check if drivers are alert or fatigued? You heard that right! An IIT-Kharagpur professor has developed a game to help locomotive drivers in Indian Railways figure out if they are fit to drive a train for long hours, or not.
In addition to the video game, his team has also developed a software that alerts authorities in case the driver falls asleep on duty, in real time.
Chemvist (Check My Vigilant State) makes use of Electrooculography (EOG) signals to check the wakefulness of drivers, who will have to wear a headband while playing a video game. The headband detects the voltage difference between the cornea and retina of the driver’s eyes, determining if the person will remain alert for the next few hours.
