As previously disclosed, the ADS™ System utilizes biometric monitoring of 524 points on the head of the operator of a vehicle to detect and signal the operator's impending loss of alertness sufficiently in advance -- generally 45 minutes to two hours before the onset of sleep -- to enable appropriate action to be taken, well before the operator becomes a hazard to himself and others. In applications such as truck, bus, or train operations, the ADS™ System would provide visual and audible alerts of the operator's impending loss of alertness to both the operator and the dispatch control center.
"The past several months have been spent strengthening the security of ADS™ System after simulations jointly performed by Apple and our technical staff suggested that the original encryption module might become a performance limitation when more than one million ADS™ System apps were running simultaneously. Rather than release the product with the knowledge that a future release would be required shortly, we decided to upgrade the encryption module immediately. While this resulted in a delay in the deployment date, we felt strongly that it was the correct approach for our customers and our product, as is currently being demonstrated in the deployment to 5,000 commercial users," said
