Ford Has Created A Trucker Hat To Wake Sleepy Drivers

Good for Ford! But you won't be needing these hats for those driverless trucks...
This cap could save a truck driver's life. SafeCap is designed to keep you awake and it was developed by Ford and Sao Paulo-based creative agency GTB. They're conducting research to tell the difference between attentive and non-attentive driving. The hat uses sensors and a gyroscope to sense head movements. If a driver starts dozing off, it'll wake them up with sound, light, and vibration. It's estimated that 250,000 Americans fall asleep while driving each day. Ford is interested in making the hat widely available, but first it'll need to undergo some additional testing.
