Question is.... how will it be used and by whom? If it's just to alert the driver that they should take a rest, that's fine... but if it's going to be used to spy on people who depend on driving as a livelihood, that's a little creepy.

As always it is the human-modulated social questions that are hardest to deal with. I suspect that car makers might be happy to design such systems into drivers seats and offer them as an optional safety feature that triggers an alarm.
