NUL STUDENTS CREATE AN APP THAT PREVENTS YOU FROM SLEEPING WHEN YOU DRIVE

 

When you are driving, the app is linked to a camera that is “looking” carefully at your face, especially your eyes. If you get drowsy, when driving, the app literally wakes you up! It raises an alarm. There is more to its kindness. After waking you up, it sends you information about the nearest garage, hotel or guest house. It says, “You are just 5 km away from a resting place.”

If you didn’t know, this is an application of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Welcome to the world of the Fourth Industrial Revolution as National University of Lesotho (NUL) takes the lead.
