Between March and April 2011, “an air traffic controller fell asleep on the job in Miami,” (Stark, Dolak, 2011). Now no major incident occurred due to the safety of any individuals on any planes as a result, but anyone can see how this could be problem and something needs to be done to rectify the work shifts these individuals work. Some work midnight shifts for a week, and then the next week work day shifts. “The chief in charge of the study recommends controllers be allowed sleeping breaks of as long as 2.5 hours during midnight shifts,” Stark, Dolak, 2011).
Along with regular sleeping breaks, how about adding a remote system. Computer system doesn’t getting tired, can see other planes on extreme weather, and can see farther and in the dark, then a human. “The technology could revolutionize air traffic services, according to the UK's National Air Traffic Service (Nats),” (BBC News, 2015).
