    Discover how Fadel's Sighra System is revolutionizing driver safety

    When it comes to road transport, driver safety is an unquestionable priority. Roads can be challenging places, often subject to adverse conditions and unpredictable situations. That's why controlling the driver's journey is essential to ensure they are always in optimal driving condition and to avoid accidents related to fatigue or other dangerous circumstances.

    Fadel is one of the companies at the forefront of driver safety with its Sighra System, one of the main control tower technologies on the market and of great importance for the logistics sector. This system not only monitors drivers' journeys, but also implements several measures to ensure their safety in real time.

    In this article, we will cover five aspects of the Sighra System and how it contributes to driver safety. Check out!

    1. Driving Time Control: Avoiding Overwork Accidents

    One of the most important features of the Sighra System is driving time control. The system monitors the time a driver spends driving, with a limit of 4 hours of continuous driving. This control is essential to avoid accidents caused by driver fatigue, as exhaustion can seriously compromise attention and the ability to react behind the wheel. When the limit is reached, the Sighra System begins handling the event, ensuring that the driver takes an adequate break before continuing the journey.

    2. Journey Control: Ensuring Driver Safety

    In addition to controlling driving time, the Sighra System also manages the hours a driver is on the journey. Control begins after 11 hours of work, aiming at driver safety and accident prevention. O work records hours worked, ensuring that drivers do not exceed limits established by safety regulations.

    3. Risk Management: Protecting Drivers on Dangerous Routes

    Road safety also involves preventing risky situations. The Sighra System offers robust risk management that includes pre-registered route control. This means that vehicles must follow a specified route. Any unauthorized deviation triggers an alarm in the control center, allowing an immediate response to prevent drivers from being coerced into taking dangerous paths.

    4. Panic and Duress Button: Quick Response to Emergency Situations

    In emergency or duress situations, drivers can activate the panic button or enter a duress password. The Sighra System responds promptly to these signals, establishing contact with the driver to assess the situation. If necessary, the control center notifies the authorities and initiates a sequenced blocking of the vehicle, ensuring the driver's safety.

    5. Door Alarm Control: Preventing Risky Situations

    Invasion of the driver's cabin is an unacceptable risk situation. To prevent this, the Sighra System monitors the vehicle's doors. If a door event is detected, the system initiates a self-locking of the car and informs the control center through an alarm. From there, the center operators call those responsible, contact the driver and, when necessary, call the authorities to deal with the situation.

    In summary, Fadel's Sighra System is of great importance for driver safety, ensuring that they are always in ideal conditions to drive and responding quickly to risk situations. This system not only promotes driver safety, but also contributes to road safety as a whole, making road transport more reliable and efficient.
