This invention is to provide a disposable or non-disposable wearable senor which can create a signal to keep the user awake and prevent the user from falling asleep. The device can be a wristband or other wearable sensor, including, but not limited to, those currently on the market. The device can sense that the driver or operator is sleeping by lack of movement, lower heart rate, or any other known physiological measurements that would indicate a user is sleeping. The signal can be a sound alarm or movement like vibration or stimulus. The signal can be to the user directly or from a third party such like a control center. This signal serves to prevent any accidents such as driving cars, trains, airplanes, machines run by night shift workers, or personnel on critical duties such as military persons. The signal may be triggered instantly or within a certain time range after a sign that the driver or operator is sleeping.
