The glasses have sensors that detect yawning and blinking – red lights on the glasses start to flicker and an alarm vibrates.

They can also be connected to a phone application and message passengers to warn them.

The Prudensee glasses are the brainchild of former optician Philippe Peyrard and are available from Optic 2000 in seven styles for €289.
