Restorative sleep is crucial to getting through the working day in a concentrated and active way. American and European studies show that tired employees are up to 55% less productive and 20% more absent than their well-rested colleagues. Sleep-deprived workers are also more likely to have an accident at work. High time for a wake-up call!

BruBotics, the human robotics research centre at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, put it to the test. Carglass and Mensura participated in the test project.
