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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
