Symbiosis: Fatigue characterization

Symbiosis: Fatigue characterization


The objective of this project is to develop a prototype system capable of mitigating, preventing and/or reporting on machine operator conditions that could potentially result in the above-mentioned consequences. These states can refer both to physical parameters (tachycardia, bradycardia, hypoxia, hypotension, etc.) and to psychological states (drowsiness, stress, states of alert, etc.)


The proposed solution is based on an analysis of fatigue using two independent modules: real-time analysis of the encephalography (EEG) and the detection of facial features through image processing, which allows a comparison between both modules at the same time, which almost completely minimizes the probability of system error when detecting fatigue.

Development of an innovative ICT tool for the characterization of physical and psychological fatigue associated with driving


1. Use of artificial intelligence

2. Improving road safety

3. Use of ICT technology

4. Anticipating operator fatigue problems
