About the solution

The day Hassan’s wife gave birth, after many sleepless nights, the young father became drowsy and almost crashed the car while driving home from the hospital with his family. Reflecting on the near-miss, Hassan decided to use his electrical engineering expertise to develop an invention that eliminates accidents caused by lack of sleep.

Hassan believes his project can decrease deadly road accidents but also foresees its use on construction sites and in the military. His invention is called Wakecap.

The inventor presented his innovation at the Qatar tv show Stars of Science.

“Through Stars of Science, I want to inspire the youth in the Arab world and motivate them to be interested in scientific research,” said Hassan. “We don’t have to rely on foreign technology - we can invent, design and create new technology here in the Middle East.”
