EEG headsets used by Rio Tinto to monitor worker fatigue without the need for cameras

May 29, 2018 | Case Study

SmartCap developed an EEG-based fatigue management solution. The company originally targeted mining, and while its client base includes several of the world’s largest mining companies, it recently shifted its primary focus to road fleets. SmartCap claims that while road fleet companies are motivated to adopt fatigue management solutions due to economic benefits, workers themselves often show resistance to digital safety solutions due to privacy concerns. SmartCap explains that its ability to offer an EEG-based solution, which employees deem less intrusive than video-based solutions, has contributed to the technologyls desirability among employers.
