The Maven Co-Pilot™ addresses truck driver fatigue and distraction- a primary cause of injury and physical damage in the trucking industry. With nearly 500,000 yearly accidents costing on average $60,000 each, the issue of prevention is a $30B question for the transportation industry. Existing technologies vigorously monitor location (GPS) and mechanical systems (e.g., tire pressure regulators). However, the human operator remains unprotected. This is a key concern as 90% of accidents are attributable to operator error. The Maven Co-Pilot™ is the first wearable device designed to shield truck drivers from fatigue and distraction. The Co-Pilot helps keep professional drivers alert so they arrive safe.
The Maven Co-Pilot™ is an unobtrusive solution that uses state of the art sensors mounted on a comfortable headset. Smart (i.e., learning) algorithms can detect the subtle differences between mirror checking and moments of micro-sleep aka ‘head-bobs’. If a fatigue threshold is crossed, the headset alerts the operator. The hands-free Bluetooth® headset is designed for commercial use and has the advantage of being sturdier and more comfortable than entry-level brands. The Co-Pilot allows frictionless adoption by providing drivers with an upgraded safe-communications device while giving fleet managers detailed insight to driver behavior and alertness.
API / Dashboards
The value of our patent pending system lies in how we process data from the array of sensors. We gather data in real-time from 13 unique sensors. Simple processing is managed directly on the app (and continues even when Internet connection is lost.) Our cloud receives the data and is used to manage data, mine data, and provide reports. What’s more, Co-Pilot output can be fused with outside systems through our API. For example, Co-Pilot accelerometers might corroborate an alarm triggered by the vehicle’s brake sensor signaling a ‘hard braking event.’ What’s more, the Co-Pilot can essentially rewind the operator’s behavior immediately prior to critical situations. In this regard, the cloud-stored Co-Pilot data is an excellent source for performance reviews, training materials, and accident forensics.
We treat driver privacy very seriously. Any data collected is meant to keep you safe! Our Co-Pilot headset is designed to be comfortable and unobtrusive, especially when compared to competing products that rely on video surveillance. The Co-Pilot safety systems will always warn drivers first when fatigue is detected. Still, fatigue studies have all shown a catch22 exists- that tired drivers have difficulty self-evaluating their fatigue level. For this reason, we provide the ability to escalate alerts for outside assistance. All drivers have access to their dashboard and reporting from the Co-Pilot is highly configurable. Owner/Operators who wish for greater control over their data can ask about our program for independents.
Maven Machines is your safety partner. We work closely with both drivers and safety officers to ensure the Co-Pilot is a good fit. We strive for high user adoption and a complete understanding of the business goals. We work with organizations to pinpoint their safety needs. We understand how requirements can vary based differences such as the types of trucks, types of cargo, route distances, driver preferences, and even the make-up of employee vs. contract drivers. We will work with your organization to understand how information will be used and the types of dashboards that are needed. Everyone agrees, Co-Pilot data has tremendous value. It can shield drivers from drowsiness, but can also raise safety awareness throughout an entire organization, from real-time displays in 24/hr safety centers, to aggregate reports designed for classroom training.
