Problem Statement:
Drowsy driving ranks among the leading causes of freeway accidents, endangering countless lives. Shockingly, there existed no effective system to alert fellow drivers about the presence of a fatigued motorist on the road.
The data is alarming: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that drowsy driving contributes to an estimated 91,000
crashes annually in the United States alone. There was an urgent need for innovative technology and an alert system to mitigate the risks associated with tired drivers and enhance road safety for all.

About the Innovation:
Young innovators from DiscoverSTEM devised an ingeniously simple system to not only alert the drowsy driver but inform another driver in the vicinity about the presence of this drowsy driver. The system tracks the alertness of the driver and if found drowsy, it not only raises an alarm but also relays a message to other drivers in the vicinity about the danger.

DiscoverSTEM founders Mirza Rizwan and Mirza Faizan have made history by becoming the first Indian to win the coveted George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation – USA.

Started in 1949 by former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Freedoms Foundation honors exceptional contributions of Americans towards communities in the USA. Generally reserved for the US citizens, the awarding organization made an exception to recognize the stellar research work and its impact of India’s Mr. Rizwan in designing and implementing a unique STEM & Innovation program for American children, thereby revolutionizing the education system in the USA.

Few of the other notable non-US citizens who have received George Washington Honor Medal include Ms. Margaret Thatcher (Former Prime Minister of United Kingdom), Lech Walesa (Former President of Poland and Noble Prize winner) and world-renowned Russian writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. As the latest recipients of this prestigious honor, Mirza brothers join historically acclaimed group of citizens whose work and dedication advance the American ideals, the award letter says.

Some of the distinguished US citizens who have received this award for their stellar contributions in their field are Walt Disney, Astronauts Sally Ride and John Glenn, Capt. Sully Sullenberger, Athletes like Arthur Ashe, George Foreman and Tiger Woods and famous US educator Jaime Escalante.
