Scania releases new driver fatigue fighting app

Scania Angel Call app calls family or friends when driver fatigue detected…

This looks like a clever and potentially very effective road safety tool – a new app that calls a truck drivers family or friends when fatigue starts to set in.

Known as the Angel Call, the app was co-developed by Scania in Russia and aims to use compassion from the driver’s relatives and loved ones to increase road safety and save lives.

Should the system detect that a driver has exceeded the set time limit for driving, it alerts the nominated angel who then calls the driver and convinces him or her to stop and have some rest.

The Angel Call app is free to download and is connected to Scania’s Fleet Management system (FMS).
