浸大研發「駕駛人士疲勞檢測及警告系統」 提高道路安全 奪日內瓦國際發明展大獎 下周一分享新技術

To reduce accidents caused by fatigue driving, Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) Computer Science scholar Professor Cheung Yiu-ming and his team have developed a system that detects drowsy drivers and alerts them by simply using a generic smartphone. The invention clinched two top prizes at the 45th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva in April 2017.

This new system requires no additional devices or sensors. It is simple to operate, cost-effective, portable, and is suitable for all drivers, in particular professional drivers and also machinery workers who have long working hours. The new approach can help to enhance road safety, making it appealing to the consumer market.

Professor Cheung Yiu-ming will introduce the invention and give a demonstration of its capabilities to the media on Monday. Details are as follows:
