The project "Artificial intelligence for healthy work in driving professions: Workload and Safety in Traffic and Transport (KARAT)" implements an employee-oriented AI application to support the driving professions in Germany. By using individual data, physiological reactions and driving data as well as publicly available data (e.g. weather data, major events, traffic situations), an analysis of workload based on machine learning is developed. This application allows the prognosis of the individually health and work related optimal travel and shift scheduling and suggests measures for stress reduction as well as optimal work, assignment and route planning.
Das Projektkonsortium besteht aus den erfahrenen Forschungspartnern FOM Hochschule Essen (Koordination), Universität Bremen, Universität Duisburg-Essen und Universität Hohenheim sowie den Praxispartnern Duisport-Gruppe (Duisburg), dem KMU-Transportunternehmen Sherwood (Köln) und dem Speditionsverband VSL NRW (Düsseldorf).
