Fatigue is the biggest killer on roads, globally. When a driver is drowsy, or worse has a microsleep, the risk of a fatal event increases significantly as they are simply unable to concentrate on the road ahead.

Guardian Generation 2 is setting a new standard in drowsiness detection.

How it works

Guardian Generation 2 with early drowsiness detection continuously monitors and evaluates a driver’s level of drowsiness based on the Karolinska Sleepiness Scale (KSS), warning them before they reach the critical state of microsleep. 


The new light bar illuminates unobtrusively when a driver is displaying early signs of fatigue, allowing them to take appropriate action to keep themselves safe.


Data sent to the secure Guardian Live web portal also ensures fleet operators always have a comprehensive and continuous view of their driver’s fatigue state. Should a fatigue event occur, Guardian will still intervene with audio, visual and haptic alerts however the pre-emptive warning is designed to avoid drivers reaching this increasingly dangerous level of tiredness.

Designed and independently assessed to meet the European Commission’s General Safety Regulations for Driver Drowsiness and Attention Warning (DDAW) systems.

Upgrade today!

The light bar is easily attached to the top of the existing Guardian Generation 2 in-cab sensor, using its existing screws. It redirects the light from existing LEDs in the in-cab sensor and accentuates this so it’s visible to the driver.

The technician will then use a dongle to perform the required software update. Overall, the upgrade takes approximately 30 minutes per device and is available for $159.00+GST per unit.
