Maven’s Co-Pilot headset is a hands-free Bluetooth communications device that can be paired with a driver’s smartphone to make phone calls, listen to music and get voice commands from navigation apps. Inside the headset are sensors that detect subtle head movements as drivers look side-to-side at mirrors, down at gauges or at objects inside and around the vehicles. The sensors and algorithms also can detect head bobs or a lack of movement as early signs of drowsiness or fatigue. The headset communicates with the Maven Co-Pilot app that gives feedback on safe driving. Scores indicate if a driver checks mirrors in a timely manner, follows the speed limit and more.
