Increase in the number of motor vehicles continue to increase, it is influential and can causing an increase in the level of accidents in the streets. Travel on a motorcycle is a job that demands a physical condition prhyme and strong. Preparation before driving and concentration during the journey it’s a very important thing. Before making a long journey using motorcycles, riders need pay attention to some preparations, ie the kend factor vehicles, driving gear and which is not less important is the condition of the conditions want his own is very decisive safety ride. Excellent health necessary prepared bikers, ie the body condition that must be fresh to be able to maintain concentration and alertness pay attention to road conditions, environment around and road signs during the trip and should stay focused.
Regarding the cause of accident factors due to carelessness of the rider, there is an important note. That is based on the evaluation results of the State Police Republik Indonesia (POLRI), this is the main cause of accidents that occur is due to the human factor itself. The problem ismost often considered trivial is the sleepiness which is the main cause of the biggest accidents on the highway. In a sleepy condition when driving, which can cause loss of concentration and a split second of the eyes closed and accident accidents are ready to overwrite, then do not underestimate the condition of our body when it feels sleepy. And, it’s good to recognize the main thing of the many causes of sleepiness. For that, needed a solution to be able to give a message and influence to road users, especially users of motor vehicles, as well as the public about the dangers of motor driving when sleepy as a preventive measure of the main cause of major accidents on the highway.
Inspired by this then two girls Kamila Sedah Kirana and Nurin Jannatin from IT High School Al Irsyad Al Islamiyyah Puwokerto Central Java creates an anti-Sleepy jacket, the result of this creation makes them one finalist NYIA LIPI in Jakarta in 2015.
Sleepy jacket or Sleepy Reminding Jacket they make is designed for driving safety standards. How it works jacket reminds the sleepy rider by giving vibration to the body of the rider. In this jacket implanted four main components of the Earclip Hearth Rate Sensor as input, Arduino Uno R3 as a microcontroller, 5.9 Volt DC motor as output and PCB board. The system they create can vibrate DC motors if the detectable pulse rate is below normal or less than 60 mmHg and returns to rest if the pulse reaches a normal value or about 80 mmHg. To use the jacket is also quite easy The earclip sensor is installed in the ear, then the switch on the jacket is turned on, the system will detect the pulse and get the average pulse rate per 20 seconds, vibration arises when the pulse is smaller than 60 mmHg (Sleepy condition) if the pulse is normal then this vibration stops automatically
