  • Patent number: 10446047
    Abstract: A method includes, for each of two or more driving sessions in which a student driver operates a vehicle, gathering driving skill data indicative of at least one of behavior of the student driver, acceleration of the vehicle, braking of the vehicle, or steering of the vehicle, and generating a driving session report. The method further includes causing the driving session reports corresponding to the two or more driving sessions to be displayed to a driving instructor, and receiving comments from the driving instructor about the two or more driving sessions of the student driver. Still further, the method includes storing the driving session reports corresponding to the two or more driving sessions along with the received comments from the driving instructor.

  • Patent number: 10343520
    Abstract: The method, system, and computer-readable medium facilitates monitoring one or more eyes of a vehicle operator during a driving session to generate a plurality of gaze location logs with gaze location values. The gaze location value may be generated by determining a location of the vehicle operator's gaze, determining which area of the vehicle is associated with the gaze location, and assigning the gaze location value based on the area of the vehicle associated with the gaze location. The gaze location logs may be analyzed to determine the duration of the vehicle operator's gaze at each area of the vehicle. Based on the duration of the vehicle operators gaze, one or more recommendations to improve vehicle operator performance may be identified and communicated to the vehicle operator.

  • Patent number: 10343693
    Abstract: In a computer-implemented method, data about potential vehicle operator impairment is retrieved. The data is generated by monitoring a vehicle operator, the environment ahead of the vehicle, and/or force in one or more directions. A number of impairment scores are generated by analyzing the data about potential vehicle operator impairment. A specific time period during which the vehicle operator tends to be most impaired is determined based on the impairment scores. Recommendations to reduce operator impairment of the vehicle operator are identified and communicated to the vehicle operator.

  • Patent number: 10163163
    Abstract: A method includes receiving data about potential impairment of a vehicle operator, wherein the data about potential impairment is generated by: (i) monitoring the vehicle operator with a first optical sensor, and (ii) monitoring an environment ahead of a vehicle operated by the vehicle operator with a second optical sensor. The computer-implemented method further includes assigning a plurality of scores based on the data about potential impairment, wherein each of the plurality of scores corresponds to a respective impairment indicator, and determining an impairment score for the vehicle operator by performing a mathematical operation on the plurality of scores, the impairment score summarizing a level of impairment of the vehicle operator.

  • Patent number: 9932042
    Abstract: In a computer-implemented method, data about potential vehicle operator impairment is retrieved. The data is generated by monitoring a vehicle operator, the environment ahead of the vehicle, and/or force in one or more directions. For each of a plurality of trips, an impairment score is generated by analyzing the data about potential vehicle operator impairment, and determining whether the vehicle operator was impaired during the trip by comparing the impairment score to a threshold value. A specific time period during which the vehicle operator tends to be most impaired is determined based on the determinations of whether the vehicle operator was impaired. Recommendations to reduce operator impairment of the vehicle operator are identified and communicated to the vehicle operator.
