DriveSafe: App for Google Glass that can save your life behind the wheel

A “startup” has developed an application for Google Glass emitting an audible alert if the user is falling asleep at the wheel. DriveSafe for Glass is specifically designed for augmented reality glasses from Google and must be installed manually.


The software uses sensors to detect the glasses the level of user attention on the road and gives audible and visual warning if the user falls asleep. Also, after searching the nearest break and trace a route to it.

The application is not available in MyGlass so that requires manual installation. It can be configured using the voice command “Ok Glass, keep me awake”. However, the developer notes that are not yet guaranteed to keep you from falling asleep at the wheel. Drivesafe is not responsible for any accident or injury that may occur while using this service, still in beta.
