Blue light

Continuous exposure to blue light while driving therefore appears to be as efficient as coffee for fighting sleepiness at the wheel, as long as this light does not hinder the driver.

The researchers are now verifying these first results by making a test on a larger number of subjects, including women and the elderly.
