SENSATION - ADVANCED SENSOR DEVELOPMENT FOR ATTENTION, STRESS, VIGILANCE & SLEEP/WAKEFULNESS MONITORING 1/1/2004
Funded By: European Commission_FP7www.sensation-eu.org
Sleep loss, excessive fatigue, stress and inattention constitute the social diseases of our century. Within the \"24 hour society\" people tend more and more to exchange sleep and serenity for gain or pleasure. This gradually leads to an excessive rate of sleep disorders, roughly 20% of the population suffer from one, at least mildly or temporarily, as well as to a boom of stress and anxiety related diseases. In addition, a significant percentage of severe traffic and industrial accidents seem t...
