The Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety (DADSS) Program is developing a first-of-its-kind technology that can passively detect when a driver is under the influence of alcohol and prevent the vehicle from moving. The technology can be programmed for any BAC limit up to 0.08%. Our Alcohol Detection System (ADS) is particularly well-suited for fleets—it helps keep vehicle operators safe, which also protects your business.

In 2018, Virginia’s Department of Motor Vehicles became the first state partner of the DADSS Program to help test the ADS in fleets. The resulting Driven to Protect Program works with James River Transportation to conduct in-vehicle, on-road test trials of the DADSS technology. Engineers have already installed prototypes of the breath-based sensors into four vehicles in the James River Transportation commercial fleet. The data and feedback collected from the prototype sensors, as well as from the drivers themselves, will be invaluable in finalizing the technology as it is prepared for widespread commercialization.

The DADSS Program will be exhibiting at NAFA’s 2019 Institute & Expo from April 15-17, 2019 in Louisville, Kentucky. If you are a fleet manager or service provider who will be attending the conference, stop by booth 979 to learn more about how DADSS helps provide safety that’s also good for the bottom line.
