  • The Steering Wheel Sleep Alarm will be used to alert a driver when they fall asleep at the wheel of their vehicle. it use capacitance sensing to alert the driver when the system no longer senses that the drivers hands are in contact with the steering wheel. With so many deaths and injuries occuring due to drowsy driving the need to alert a driver before an accident occurs is vital. This system will be self contained in the steering wheel area consisting of a capacitance sensor incorporated into a steering wheel cover and a small box with all electronics within it. The size of the package along with the ease of installation will make it distinguish this installation from its more complicated and intrusive competing products.
