Lakshya Gupta and Jaldeep Giniya, engineering students of UPES, have started a company called ‘Umbeo Tech’ which aims to solve real life problems using technologies like Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, etc. They have developed a sleep detector device that aims to reduce road accidents in the country, by detecting the reducing attention level of a four-wheeler driver and alerting him/her before the mishap.
The device which has the potential to reduce road accidents uses computer vision technology to detect the attention levels of the driver. It can be used by automobile companies or by individuals as an additional safety feature. Umbeo Tech was recognised by Start-up India initiative and is in talks with Uttarakhand government for the testing of the device and to deploy the device in all the transport buses.
