    March , San Diego, CA. The 10th International Conference on Managing Fatigue was held in San Diego, California, on March , The theme of this event was "Managing Fatigue to Improve Safety, Wellness, and Effectiveness" and featured presentations on measuring fatigue and fatigue risk, training and education, sleep health, and more. Many previous researches have focused on the fatigue driving problem of commercial truck drivers [21][22][23][24] [25]. Various sources and types of real-time data have been used in detecting.

The data collection for this study involved eighty drivers in the United States and Canada who were monitored over a period of sixteen by: The goal of this module is to convey an understanding of truck driver drowsiness and fatigue.

More specifically, the module will help safety managers: identify the onset of drowsy and fatigued driving in the context of commercial vehicle operations, understand the countermeasures drivers typically choose to combat drowsiness, and recognize the.

According to a survey conducted by the FMCSA and NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), the main reason behind commercial truck crashes are fatigued and overworked drivers.
