ASP Technology today released an iPhone and iPad app that will help you stay awake while driving. Anti Sleep Pilot App combines your device's accelerometer, clock, timer, GPS and other apps to help prevent fatigue driving related accidents. Here is more info:
The app is easily configured; users create a baseline profile the first time they use the app. Before each drive, the app helps the driver determine his or her current fatigue status. During the drive, the app automatically calculates the driver's fatigue level combining personal information with drive data such as time of day and drive time which is automatically registered by the iPhone.
The user's fatigue level is displayed on the screen. A series of light and sound tests are used to break the monotony of driving and maintain the driver's alertness. The app records the reaction time, which is also used as one of the 26 input factors in the calculation of the driver's fatigue level. Ultimately the app sounds an alarm, alerting the driver to take a preventive rest break when they are about to reach a critical driving-fatigue level. The app also displays driving distance, average driving speed, and the progression of the driver's fatigue level. The application is also integrated with Google Maps.
