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

Panacea is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project under the heading Research and Innovation Action (RIA). It is a three-year project, with budget €3.49 million, and 10 Work Packages.

Aims:

·      Develop an holistic pre-, during and roadside monitoring and assessment system of driving ability

·      Create a way to assess physical, cognitive, and physiological Fitness-to-Drive (commercial drivers)

·      Deliver cloud-based countermeasures and coaching tools to deploy solutions to drivers, operators, and enforcement.

 

Objectives:

·      Create 3 Commercial Health Toolkits (CHT) (Health monitoring, assessment methodologies and technical solutions for commercial drivers)

·      Estimate their sensitivity, specificity, effectiveness and operability (alcohol, licit and illicit drugs, fatigue stress and cognitive load)

·      Evaluate their usefulness, ease-of-use, satisfaction and acceptance (3 Use-Case Pilots)

·      Develop and evaluate cloud-based coaching and supporting solutions

·      Create a new definition of Fitness to Drive

·      Suggest policy and legislative recommendations and updates of existing standards

·      Assess the safety, socioeconomic and Quality of Life impacts.
