Harvard research paper involving Optalert's drowsiness detection technology

This recently published paper from researchers at Harvard, Melbourne and Monash Universities used Optalert (as well as other measures of drowsiness) in shift workers. 
These shift workers drove on a closed-circuit track for two hours after working a regular night shift. Their impaired driving performance was detected by JDS™ scores and by other measures of blinks derived from Optalert. 

This study emphasises the importance of Optalert's drowsiness detection technology for all shift workers when driving home after a night shift has ended. The disruption to the body’s natural circadian rhythm places these workers at a higher risk of being involved in a drowsiness-related accident or suffering an injury. 

The research paper explains that the commute home - following a night-shift - is a particularly hazardous time for shift workers. There are millions of shift workers all over the world - are yours at risk?
