Dr. Bud Zaouk, Founder and CEO of KEA, is interviewed on Bloomberg.
The DADSS Program, of which KEA is a testing partner, is working with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), the Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety (ACTS), and Schneider — a premier provider of transportation, intermodal, and logistics services - on a trial deployment program for anti-drunk driving technology.
The Virginia DMV, along with several partners, announced the expansion of real-world testing of a device that can detect if a driver has been drinking just by them getting in the vehicle.
Schneider will become the first truckload carrier to conduct a trial deployment of "lifesaving technology" developed through the Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety Program (DADSS).
As part of the Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety (DADSS), researchers have developed tiny vent-like sensors that draw in a driver's exhaled breath and test it.
Or the driver pushes the ignition button, which measures blood alcohol levels under the skin's surface by shining an infrared light through the person's fingertip.
