SmartCap Measures Workers' Brainwaves Not Intelligence

You have all heard the phrase: "Get your brains tested." Well, perhaps it is mainly the older generation who heard it in their youth. However, some Australian workers are having their brains scanned.
Should These SmartCaps stay where they are - in the cupboard
They are wearing special baseball caps that measure brain activity. researchers are looking for signs of tiredness. It is fatigue that is the precursor to an accident. The problem is - are workers to be paid to have a rest? Of course, employers will say no. We could be heading toward a workplace rumble here!

Ironically the new device is called a SmartCap, when there is nothing intelligent about it. It certainly does not measure intelligence. When tiredness is detected an alarm goes off that everyone in the vicinity can hear. Are employees expected to lie down and rest where they are standing?
