As quoted of DigitalTrends on Thursday, December 31, 2015, the baseball cap exterior of SmartCap houses an ElectroEncephaloGram (EEG) technology, which continuously analyzes the brain waves of its wearer. Analysis was translated as specific algorithms to reveal the level of fatigue and drowsiness of a person.

SmartCap do not want to generalize the level of fatigue everybody, so the limitation of fatigue level is set by the user. Because the owner of the cap considered more aware to their boundary conditions respectively

At a certain level, the smart hat is authorized to "awaken" the sleepy driver with a warning alarm through a variety of user devices that have been integrated. Not only giving a warning alarm, SmartCap can also give the advice to the user. All refer to the data collected in the SmartCap cloud system.

For example, at a certain point of fatigue, the body needs drinking as the water intake. At another point, users can simply rest a few minutes. Furthermore, the data in the cloud can also be used to investigate the accidents.
