he  high  emphasis  on  safety  while  operating vehicles, planes, and heavy machinery is essential. The operators, the company, and the public have great interest in safety due to concerns of public relations and customer well-being.  This  project  pursues  the  creation  of  a physiological alertness feedback  device  or “smart” ear seals for astronauts, pilots, and heavy machine operators. This product will acquire the appropriate signals (BCG, ECG, EEG, navigation), process them, and give essential feedback  through  piezoelectric  tactile  vibrators.  This augmented  system  is  essentially  comprised  of  three separate, but integrated concepts: (1) novel physiological monitoring and fatigue/alertness, mental workload, and heart rate variability calculation; (2) Navigation monitoring; and (3) feedback through piezo-electric tactile sensors.
