Abstract

Fatigue is one of the leading causes of workplace incidents and car accidents and a rising safety issue for many industries. Many factors can be a source of fatigue, including sleep deprivation and prolonged mental and physical work. Negligence in effectively dealing with fatigue can have enormous consequences, ranging from economic loss due to a lack of productivity, to more extreme outcomes such as death. Therefore, it is essential to gain a better understanding on how to effectively detect fatigue.

The goal of this project is to isolate and determine how eye-tracking data can be used to assess fatigue in a person. Through this, we can better understand the neuropsychological signs of fatigue, and implement measures to improve safety and performance. The results of this research aim to minimize the risk of fatigue-related errors and accidents.
