1. A computer-implemented method for monitoring a vehicle operator during operation of a vehicle, comprising:

  • receiving, at one or more processors, sensor data from one or more sensors regarding the vehicle operator, including data related to at least one of the following;

    alertness of the vehicle operator, distractedness of the vehicle operator, emotional state of the vehicle operator, or vehicle operator workload due to traffic conditions;

    determining, by one or more processors and using the received sensor data, first and second impairment scores associated with first and second vehicle operator states, including at least two of the following;

    alertness of the vehicle operator, distractedness of the vehicle operator, anxiety of the vehicle operator, agitation of the vehicle operator, aggression of the vehicle operator, or health of the vehicle operator;

    determining, by one or more processors, the vehicle operator is impaired with respect to the first vehicle operator state when the first impairment score exceeds a first threshold value associated with the first impairment score;

    determining, by one or more processors, the second impairment score associated with the second vehicle operator state is elevated but does not exceed a second threshold value associated with the second impairment score;

    determining, by one or more processors, one or more predicted reactions of the vehicle operator to one or more potential responses based upon the first and second impairment scores;

    selecting, by one or more processors, a response to implement based upon the one or more predicted reactions of the vehicle operator to the one or more potential responses; and

    causing the selected response to be implemented.
