4 Reasons Why Every Trucker Needs A Vigo
Vigo is an innovative headset that analyzes blink patterns and head movements to monitor alertness levels and then prompts the trucker to take action when drowsy and in need of a break.
According to The American Trucking Association, Hours of Service is the number one concern in the trucking industry. On long hauls, fatigue may affect the driver’s motor skills, causing mishaps. These may be avoided if the driver stays alert by taking a break at regular intervals.
Why does every professional truck driver need a VIGO?
1. Vigo tracks your alertness over time
Vigo starts logging data about your alertness the moment you put the device on and doesn’t stop until you take it off. The companion app visualizes important information about your alertness in a simple, useful way to allow you to see patterns and make changes in your routine. Maybe you’re more drowsy on weekday afternoons, or maybe you’re more alert in the evenings than mornings. Vigo helps you understand your pattern of weariness so you can plan your day accordingly.
2. Vigo alerts/nudges you when you need it
Choose whether Vigo alerts you when you’ve been idle for too long or when you’re starting to doze off by controlling the sensitivity of the algorithm. And how does Vigo get your attention when it detects you’re not your best? That’s up to you. Choose between a vibration, a notification LED or your favorite song to help you re-focus and get back in the zone.
3. Smart recommendations
Maybe you spend too much time sitting in one place, maybe you tend to get groggy early in the morning, or maybe you drive past too many exits on the road without taking a rest. Vigo finds the times you’re low on fuel and gives you ideas about ways you can change your routine to help you get in the zone faster, and stay in it longer.
4. Doubles as a Bluetooth headset
The device connects to your phone and functions just like a Bluetooth headset with hands-free talking capabilities – so you don’t have to worry about missing phone calls, texts, or notifications.
