SmartCap Technologies

SmartCap is a predictive fatigue monitoring system that measures an operator or driver's brain activity to calculate their level of alertness whilst operating equipment. Operators wear a baseball style cap that measures EEG through sophisticated sensors concealed in the cap lining.

Operator and driver fatigue is responsible for many injuries and losses in a number of industries throughout the world. SmartCap allows fatigue to be managed in a proactive way to ensure that your people go home safe each and every day. EEG or Electroencephalography is the measurement of electrical activity along the scalp and is the gold standard in sleep science. Your brain cells communicate via electrical impulses and are active all the time, even when you're asleep. By measuring an operator’s brain wave (EEG) information SmartCap can calculate a measure of alertness which is wirelessly communicated to a display in-cab. SmartCap can be used to manage a person's fatigue anywhere that an operator has the potential to cause damage or harm. SmartCap saves lives by predicting when an operator is at risk of a microsleep and alerting them before they fall asleep. Road haulage, rail, transport, mining and the marine industries have all used SmartCap to keep their people safe.

The technology behind the SmartCap was developed within CRCMining, a Cooperative Research Centre established by the Australian government, supported by four universities and 13 industry partners including equipment manufacturers and mining companies. SmartCap has helped drivers travel more than 17,000,000 km with more than 1,000,000 hours of operator fatigue captured. SmartCap has been independently validated by Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) and the Austin Health Institute of Breathing and Sleep (IBAS). In conjunction with a number of SmartCap users, field validation has also been performed by experts from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Chile. Installed in more than 21 operations, companies are using SmartCap as part of a comprehensive fatigue risk management solution to improve safety on site and develop strategies to support operators to proactively manage their own fatigue.
