Australian-based fatigue-monitoring software company SmartCap Technologies is expanding its key role in the nation’s transport industry following a partnership with Tytec Logistics.
Tytec Logistics is a specialist off-the-road (OTR) tyre logistics and storage provider, which last year alone moved more than 30,000 OTR tyres across more than 2.5 million kilometers from their depots in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.
SmartCap CEO Tim Ekert said SmartCap’s 2nd Generation Life product suite would be deployed across the entirety of Tytec’s fleet, following a successful trial at Tytec’s Queensland depot last year (2019).
“SmartCap’s wearable technology empowers drivers to manage their own fatigue, alerting them in real-time if they are in danger of causing harm or falling asleep.
Tytec Logistics National Logistics Manager Wally Walker said the partnership with SmartCap was a significant safety initiative to help drivers keep on top of their alertness levels while at work.
“SmartCap is as simple as each driver wearing a cap, and it is then their mate which sees them get home safely at the end of every shift; we are very impressed with it,” Mr Walker said.
