As part of a safety measure, IndiGo Airlines has introduced a wrist gadget for pilots to wear that will measure their fatigue levels. The airline has partnered with the Thales Group for the fatigue analysis tool.
The model will give detailed insights into demographic data, including routes, pairings, crew profiles and more.
The introduction of the wrist gadgets comes after an IndiGo pilot died of a cardiac arrest at the Nagpur airport last month, just before he was scheduled to fly the plane.
The pilot had collapsed at a boarding gate in Nagpur airport and died while being taken to hospital.
“We remain committed to our pilots’ well-being, ensuring their health and mental well-being, ultimately enhancing passenger safety,” the IndiGo airlines said as it announced that pilots will have to wear the wrist gadgets.
The device will use real-time data, historical information, and predictive analytics to measure fatigue levels.
