A lower cost alternative would be the combination of massive coffee, a Slayer album on ten and/or sensible scheduling. But of course I jest - I've taken this risk many times and I'm lucky to be alive. I hope this can get refined to be effective but yet non-intrusive.

Lane departure uses sensors. There's a new one on the road now which combines radar and vision in one package. CG

I've heard about lane departure prevention systems. Is this a part of such thing? Or is it just a warning?

Technologies like this could save thousands of lives and billions of dollars every year. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that every year there are 100,000 drowsy driving crashes reported to police costing $12.5 billion. More than half of U.S. adult drivers admit to having driven while drowsy and 17% say they have fallen asleep at the wheel within the past year. This early warning technology is overdue.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
