Abstract

The overall goal of the project is to optimize the performance requirements for alarm and signalling systems to meet the needs of an aging population. The study also examines increased cognitive confusion and performance impairment (sleep inertia) that may influence effective and timely evacuation behaviour upon awakening in an older adult population.
