Development of measures of fatigue : Using an alcohol comparison to validate the effects of fatigue on performance Williamson, Ann et al

By: Williamson, AnnSeries: Publication details: Canberra Australian Transport Safety Bureau, 2000; Road safety research report. CR 189, Description: 1 CD, 72 s. CDISBN: 0642255792Subject(s): Australia | | Measurement | Method | Performance | Test | Drunkenness | 841Online resources: Publikation/Publication Bibl.nr: VTI 2002.0734:1Location: Abstract: This study was the first of a series looking at the development of model work-rest schedules that have demonstrated effectiveness in managing driver fatigue. The aim was to develop a range of performance tests with demonstrated sensitivity for fatigue and for which the fatigue effects could be interpreted on the basis of a community-accepted standard for safety. Performance effects were studied in the same subjects over a period of 28 hours of sleep deprivation and following measured doses of alcohol up to approximately 0.1% Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC).
