NEW YORK, Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Rear View Safety, the industry leader in the sales and distribution of backup camera systems, as well as a strong and dedicated road safety advocate, is proud to announce the release of the new Vuemate RVS-330 Driver Fatigue System. The product is designed from the ground up to address one of the most important issues facing both drivers and pedestrians on the road today - drivers who get drowsy and fall asleep behind the wheel of a vehicle.
According to a poll that was recently conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, a full 60% of Americans have driven while they were feeling sleepy at least once in their lives. To make matters worse, a full 37% of respondents actually admitted to having fallen asleep at the wheel one or more times during the last year alone. This points to a very serious issue that needs to be addressed at all costs, which is precisely what the Vuemate RVS-330 Driver Fatigue Monitoring System was designed to do.
The Vuemate RVS-330 uses the latest in hardware and software to detect when a driver begins to show symptoms of drowsiness. The system itself comes with a single small, compact camera that is mounted to the dashboard of the driver's vehicle. The lens of the camera faces the driver and is always monitoring for signs that a driver may be in danger of nodding off. Should this particular situation occur, the RVS-330 will then set off an alarm in an effort to help the driver regain his or her senses and to keep them as alert as possible at all times.
One of the major benefits that the RVS-330 brings to the table comes in the form of its intelligent onboard software. A built-in tracking algorithm helps the camera accurately distinguish between the way a particular driver looks under normal circumstances and the way the same person looks when they're drowsy. Vuemate and Rear View Safety understand that no two drivers are created equally, which is why the camera needs to be smart enough to differentiate between the way that one driver may look when they're drowsy versus the way a separate person may look under normal conditions.
Installation of the RVS-330 can be accomplished in moments - after plugging the unit in and mounting it to the appropriate position on the car's dashboard, the system is ready to go as soon as the ignition on the vehicle starts. No further setup is necessary, breaking down barriers and helping create a much safer situation for drivers as quickly as possible.

Rear View Safety is not a stranger to the world of safety enhancing products for drivers and vehicles of all types. Recently they introduced GoVue, the first back up camera smartphone app for the popular iOS and Android operating systems. Once the smartphone and camera system are connected via a short-range Wi-Fi network, video information from the rear of the vehicle is transmitted to the smartphone in real time. This eliminates the need for a primary monitor to be installed into the dashboard of the vehicle in question. The GoVue back up camera application for iOS and Android devices is currently available for free download in the Google Play Store, the iTunes App Store.
Rear View Safety has long been a leader in vehicle safety solutions. The commercial backup camera provider is also available on Facebook, on Twitter, on LinkedIn and maintains a Road Safety Resource site.
