Drowsiness at the wheel
NOBODY IS ABLE
TO DEFEAT SLEEP
A great number of traffic accidents occur because the driver falls asleep at the wheel. 55% of drivers believe they can defeat sleep and continue driving in spite of feeling drowsy.
17 million drivers have felt sleepy at the wheel at some point and more than 8 million have experienced micro-sleep*.
NOW WE WARN YOU
BEFORE IT HAPPENS
We created Samsung Copilot, a Smartwatch App that measures your state of alertness and warns you so you can stop when you are falling asleep at the wheel.
How does it work?
YOU WON'T TRAVEL ALONE AGAIN
The Copilot app will accompany you on all your journeys, warning you if you are sleeping, recommending when to take a break and when to stop the car so you can be in control of it at all times.
Samsung Copilot needs a little configuration at the beginning given that the app can be personalised and is able to read the heart rate of each user.
Thanks to its algorithm, Samsung Copilot learns the patterns of each driver detecting weariness at the wheel, while the driver remains focussed the road.
Before starting the journey the user only has to activate the app on their smartwatch.
The internal sensors of the watch (gyroscope, accelerometer and heartbeat monitor) take care of measuring what happens during the journey.
Samsung Copilot learns from the driver and watches while you stay focussed on the road.
If the watch detects any danger of drowsiness or you exceed the recommended maximum number of hours driving, it begins to give warnings in the form of vibrations.

Samsung Copilot is a supplementary aid in driving 4-wheel vehicles that can detect some risks, such as drowsiness. It is not a substitute for paying due and continuous attention to your driving, nor is it a foolproof risk detector. Drive with caution and observe the rules of the road. Configure it before starting to drive. Compatible models: Samsung Gear S2, S3 and Sport; devices with operating system Android Wear 2.0 and above; and devices with operating system WatchOS 3 and above.
