A new research project is aiming to reduce road crashes caused by sleepiness.

The SleepiEST project will monitor shift-workers who drive either as part of their work, or when commuting – with the data being used to estimate and predict motorists’ fatigue levels. The Road Safety Trust has awarded funding to Nottingham Trent University (NTU) to carry out the three-year project, working alongside the National Police Wellbeing Service.
The research aims to explore the risk of sleepiness when driving, during, before and after shifts.
The project will result in a publicly available online fatigue management tool.
