Have you ever heard of a car accident caused by a driver falling asleep behind the wheel? It’s a serious problem, and if you’re working on getting your license, something to be careful to avoid. But a new safety feature might help getting behind the wheel get just a little safer.
Students from the National Polytechnic Institute in Mexico City have developed a gadget that helps keep you from falling asleep at the wheel.
The prototype device can look for signs that might be getting sleepy. When it thinks you might be dozing off, it will activate an alarm to wake you, saving you — and other drivers on the road – from an accident.
