Abstract
The study aims to assess the changes in Heart Rate Variability (HRV) indexes in healthy subjects whi le driving in a real environment in order to detect drowsiness. The ECG of ten professional drivers was acquired while driving on routes familiar to the subjects. RR time series were quantified using a sliding window of 300 beats. Mean (mRR), standard devi ation (SDNN), standard deviation of the differentiated time series (rmsDD), power of the low (PLF) and high (PHF) frequency bands as well as t...
