Older drivers are increasing in most countries of the world. One of the major causes of road
accidents for this driver’s category is fatigue. Technologies are developed to detect fatigue and
alert the driver in order to avoid accidents. A variety of measures exist to prevent the driver’s
state of fatigue. The most reliable are: (1) behavioural measures; (2) physiological measures
and (3) performance measures. In this paper, we look at research on technologies focusing on
the detection of fatigue among drivers, and more specifically aging drivers. We explain how
technologies could help drivers to detect fatigue through experimental studies. We analyze the
pro and cons of these technologies and we see the benefit for older drivers. We conclude with
recommendations on the design of future systems for older drivers.
