Researchers at the Valencia Institute of Biomechanics (IBV), in Spain, have created a seat belt that notices if the driver of a vehicle is falling asleep, activating an alert that takes him out of his sleep state and prevents possible accidents in the face of this type of dangerous situations, which occur quite a lot during long trips.

To achieve this, the Harken system has a breathing sensor in the driver’s seat, along with a heart rate monitor integrated into the seat belt. The information collected is sent to a computer that processes it in real time and monitors the state of sleep, preventing falling asleep at the wheel.
