Abstract(s)Nowadays, our lifestyle can lead to a scatter of focus, especially when we attend to several tasks in parallel or have to filter the important information from all the remaining one. In the context of a computer this usually means interacting with several applications simultaneously. Over the day, this significant demand on our brain results in the emergence of fatigue, making an individual more prone to distractions. Good management of the working time and effort invested in each task, as well as the effect of breaks at work, can result in better performance and better mental health, delaying the effects of fatigue. This paper presents a non-intrusive and non-invasive method for measuring distraction and fatigue in an individual and in a group of people. The main aim is to allow team managers to better understand the state of their collaborators, thus preparing them to take better decisions concerning their management.
