  8. OPERATOR ALERTNESS MONITORING USING THE PUPIL LIGHT REFLEX

    SBC: Pulse Electronics Inc            Topic: N/A

    A KEY FACTOR IN THE ABILITY TO SAFELY OPERATE A TRAIN IS THEOPERATOR ALERTNESS. OPERATOR ALERTNESS CAN BE COMPROMISED AS A RESULT OF FATIGUE, SUBSTANCE ABUSE OR EMOTIONAL DISTRESS. A DEVICE THAT WOULD OBJECTIVELY REPORT A PERSONS STATE OF ALERTNESS COULD INDICATE THAT PERSONS FITNESS FOR DUTY, FOR EXAMPLE, AT THE BEGINNING OF A SHIFT. IT IS WELL KNOWN THAT ALERTNESS IS HIGHLY CORRELATED WITH VARIO ...
