Fatigue and performance models: general background and commentary on the circadian alertness simulator for fatigue risk assessment in transportation.


Mathematical models of fatigue and performance are potentially powerful tools to predict the effects of duty-rest schedules in many situations. Most current models, including the Circadian Alertness Simulator (CAS), derive from the two-process theory of sleep regulation. In these models, performance and fatigue are determined by a homeostatic process that… (More)
