Drowsy driving is responsible for around 30% of all motor vehicle crashes, as reduced sleep results in drivers being inattentive and unresponsive to their environment. Our lab and others are working to establish how to measure drowsiness at the road-side akin to a breathalyser but for fatigue. But how much sleep is enough? This unique opportunity comprises the world's first real-driving, on-road study tracking multiple physiological markers of impairment following different 'doses' of sleep.
