Monitoring of brain and eye does not allow to fall asleep at wheel





Once tracking technology for brain activity and eye movements is used to prevent falling asleep at the wheel . This will help drivers and other road users to avoid critical situations on the road.

British scientists are working on a new device that will combine a system of tracking eye movement and EEG. This will help to better understand what happens in the brain when moving eyes.

Scientists can use the new technology to detect signs of sleepiness in drivers by monitoring brain activity and erratic movements of the eyes, followed by a dream. According to statistics, fatigue – the cause of about 20 percent of car accidents in the UK. The same occurs in the United States and Australia.


The technology will also help to develop computer interfaces for people with disabilities, for example, patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – a neurodegenerative disease characterized by motor neuron lesion of the brain.

Today, scientists are trying to understand the basic mechanisms of eye movements and brain activity, which will be triggered, for example, in recognizing a person in the crowd.
