According to US News & World Report, 14-year-old Katherine Wu created a device that uses EEG waves and eye blinks to prevent drowsy driving accidents.
Her invention uses EEG waves and eye blinks to determine driver drowsiness, she says. It then provides audio and visual signals to warn the driver if he or she is too tired to be on the road.
Auditory signals also change from music to calm beeps to messages warning the driver to get off the road. The device can play radio stations but progresses to warnings like “You’re tired. Please take a break.”
