The SmartCap display is a simple-to-use touch interface for the user that provides real-time information including fatigue measurements presented on a numerical scale, fatigue alarms and connectivity status. All information is stored in the SmartCap display which can be downloaded for analysis or communicated over a wireless network when interfaced with a SmartCap Base Unit, 3G modem, or integrated with a third party device.
The display contains internal memory used for encrypted storage of fatigue information collected, which can be downloaded using the SmartCap LogDownloader application for PCs. This internal memory is also used for storing firmware images for the SmartCap Processor Cards and Base Units.
The touchscreen menu system of the SmartCap displays allows user settings such as brightness to be set, as well as initial system configuration.
