Maven Machines’ Maven Co-Pilot SE (Smart Earbud) is a Bluetooth earbud with built-in safety features to keep drivers alert and focused.
The Co-Pilot SE is 20 times smaller than the company’s original Co-Pilot and weighs 0.5 ounces. A new connection manager helps the device pair to a phone or tablet in 100 milliseconds. The device has echo and noise cancellation algorithms for clearer audio. Safety features have also been upgraded. The in-ear headset fits over a single ear and features a microphone.
The smart headset measures driver head position in 3-D space in real time to provide warnings for driver fatigue and distraction. The headset’s motion sensors communicate with GPS sensors on the driver’s mobile phone to provide active verbal coaching for driver safety metrics such as speeding or hard braking.
