Fatigue Monitoring in Offshore Energy Operations

Ranjana Mehta, PhD, Texas A&M University

In the oil and gas industry, rapid technology adoption from the well site to the refinery has led to the introduction of increasingly complex human-machine interfaces. This presentation will provide an overview on our industry-academic collaborative research efforts towards the development of a fatigue monitoring system that captures predictors for operator fatigue as they relate to physiological outcomes and performance risks in offshore energy operations.


Ranjana Mehta, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at Texas A&M University and a graduate faculty in the Texas A&M Institute for Neuroscience. She serves as the director of the NeuroErgonomics Lab and Co-Director of the Texas A&M Ergonomics Center.
