This work is a culmination of years of research to develop an effective in-vehicle countermeasure to drowsy driving. Previous work has developed an effective and independently validated measure of drowsiness, PERCLOS, which has been incorporated into a drowsy driver monitor. This effort seeks to develop an associated drowsy driver interface that enables effective, user-centered interactions with the underlying system. The drowsy driver interface has been designed through a careful participatory design process that included both design experts and CMV drivers.
