CNET.com's Antuan Goodwin takes a first look at the Anti Sleep Pilot from the showfloor of CES 2011.
-Now, when you're kinda dozing off and feeling a little drowsy, probably not in the best state of mind to be deciding whether its safe to be on the road or not. Fortunately, we've got a product here that should help take that decision out of your hands. It's called the anti-sleep pilot or the ASP. It's a little pack that mounts on your dashboard and actually monitors your driving habits to tell you if you're too sleepy to be behind the wheel or not. First thing that you're gonna do is you're gonna mount this magnetic pack on your dashboard. You're gonna snap the anti-sleep pilot on to that. The magnetic pack will basically automatically bring the anti-sleep pilot to life and it will start monitoring your driving. Periodically it will prompt you to interact with it. You'll have to touch it when the light comes on the device. Judging by your reaction time and the acceleration that it can feel from the vehicle, the anti-sleep pilot will try to decide whether you're too sleepy to be behind the wheel or not. It may prompt you to pull over and take a 10-minute break, it may prompt you to just stop driving all together, but it can save you from running into a car. Now, we're not in a car right now, so we can't really test it. But we're gonna be able to take this guy home and test it out over the next couple of weeks to see how else it's gonna work. I'm Antuan Goodwin this is your first look at the anti-sleep pilot.
