This paper reviews existing fatigue detection and prediction technologies. It distinguishes between hardware technologies that are aimed at detecting transport operator fatigue in real time, and software technologies that are aimed at predicting operator fatigue in the future based on past work and rest. The first half of this paper briefly summarises the current state of research and development of the technologies. The conclusion of this section is that some of the technologies are promising but that a great deal more work needs to be done in developing and evaluating them. The second half of the paper evaluates the role of the technologies in transportation. This section discusses potentially serious problems, such as the use to which the technology will be put, the problems of integrating the output of the technologies into the transport system, and whether they will receive acceptance.
