Friendly Fatigue Alert Mobile Apps to Help Aviation Workers Prevent, Identify and Manage Alertness and Fatigue
Research Areas
  • Aeronautical engineering
Fatigue is currently one of the hottest topic in transport safety research, since it has been recognized as one of the key factors in several industrial incidents/accidents. The aeronautical industry is currently working in eveloping standards and regulation for FRMS, Fatigue Management Risk Systems, with the aim of helping aeronautical organizations to reduce the hazards ssociated with fatigued workers. The implementation of such systems is difficult and requires high effort in training, dissemination and awareness. They may greatly benefit from the development of curricula and training materials widely available through internet but also from SW or mobile applications for workers, and also for organizations, that helps them to identify fatigue situations and manage derived risk. This paper presents an initiative carried out by students of the UPM Master in Air Transport System to develop ?Friendly Fatigue Alert? mobile applications, designed specifically to help workers manage alertness and fatigue that will allow workers to estimate, detect, measure and mitigate their fatigue.
