Drowsy and distracted driving claims thousands of lives every year, largely because people do not believe they are driving impaired. The Fatal Vision® Drowsy and Distracted Goggles allow wearers to experience simulated impairment from drowsiness or distraction.
How they workThe Fatal Vision® Drowsy and Distracted Goggles are controlled and configured through Bluetooth using a mobile app on your phone. You will choose one of three impairment modes for the Drowsy and Distracted Goggles:
Mode A – Distracted Dial: simulates what could happen if someone takes his eyes off the road “just long enough” to dial a phone. Every three seconds, the goggles black out for three seconds.
Mode B – Distracted Text: simulates the distraction that occurs when someone reads or responds to a text. The goggles black out for 4.6 seconds to simulate the amount of time a person’s eyes and attention are on his phone, rather than on the road.
Mode C – Drowsy: simulates momentary micro-sleeps that build in waves until the eyes and brain shut down. The goggles black out beginning with a short half-second closure, and continue to black out for longer periods of time, progressing to a 10-second blackout.
