PracticAl and Effective tools to moNitor and Assess CommErciAl drivers’ fitness to drive (PANACEA)
Research Project , 2021 – 2024

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is extremely dangerous, increasing the risk of traffic accidents or fatality. Driver fatigue is another major cause of road accidents. This is why testing a driver’s fitness is important. In this context, the EU-funded PANACEA project will design, develop and test a holistic driving ability assessment system for truck and taxi drivers, courier service riders and other commercial drivers. Paired with cloud-based countermeasure and coaching solutions, the system could be used pre-driving, during driving and at the roadside. It could monitor drivers to detect alcohol, licit (barbituric), illicit (methadone replacement) drugs, fatigue, stress, and cognitive load.
