VARIATION OF DRIVER'S AROUSAL LEVEL DURING CAR DRIVING IN JAPAN

The 104,635 cases of rearward collisions that occurred in 1974 accounted for 21% of all traffic accidents. Using 18 male subjects, aged from 22 to 29, we conducted a total of reduction in the level of consciousness as determined by continuous measurements during normal driving of EEG, ECG, and EOG. It can be concluded that drivers must pay special attention to preventing the buildup of fatique; at the same time, particular care must be taken after ingestion of meals. /GMRL/
