Impecca’s Alert Band is a wearable early warning Bluetooth fatigue detector band that attaches to the driver’s forehead and is designed to help sense fatigue and prevent accidents. The Alert Band is designed to monitor and analyze brainwaves and send real-time notifications and alarms to the driver’s smartphone before the driver begins to doze off and fall asleep. The device is built to be user-friendly, lightweight and comfortable.

Resqme-AlertMeStill tired? Resqme’s AlertMe is a drowsy-driving warning device that sits behind the driver’s ear and is designed to buzz promptly if the head falls forward unexpectedly, effectively alerting the driver to heighten focus or pull off the road. The compact device contains no mercury.

BreathometerOne drink too many at the restaurant?

By blowing in the Breathometer, a user’s blood alcohol level is displayed on the smartphone screen within seconds.
