HARKEN – Alarm to wake you if you fall asleep while driving!

HARKEN – Alarm to wake you if you fall asleep while driving!

This European project is inspired by road accidents caused by fatigue. Because there are too much car accidents, most of them fatal, and all this can come to an end because of the solution that is offered by HARKEN device. This is a nonintrusive sensing system of driver’s respiration and heart embedded in driver’s seat and safety belt. The heart beat and respiration change when people come into a fatigued state.

Up to no there was no system that can measure this changes in a car, but this device is based on a set of components capable of capable measuring the heart rate and respiration activity filtering the noise in a moving vehicle. We all reduced number of car accidents can save a lot of lives. Nice work!
