In this study we check the feasibility of a new ECG-based approach to detect driverspsila propensity to fall asleep at the wheel. Ten healthy volunteers, under conditions of increasing sleep deprivation (up to 34 hours), were asked to alternately undergo a Maintenance of Wakefulness Test or a Driving Simulation test every 2 hours while ECG, EEG, EMG, eye movement and video were recorded. Results from 59 falling asleep (FA) events tracked from the first 5 volunteers during MWT provide promising… CONTINUE READING
