Driver Drowsiness Detection System

Sahoo, Chandraprakash (2016) Driver Drowsiness Detection System. BTech thesis.



In recent years’ driver fatigue is one of the major causes of vehicle accidents in the world. A direct way of measuring driver fatigue is measuring the state of the driver i.e. drowsiness. So it is very important to detect the drowsiness of the driver to save life and property. This project is aimed towards developing a prototype of drowsiness detection system. This system is a real time system which captures image continuously and measures the state of the eye according to the specified algorithm and gives warning if required.
Though there are several methods for measuring the drowsiness but this approach is completely non-intrusive which does not affect the driver in any way, hence giving the exact condition of the driver. For detection of drowsiness the per closure value of eye is considered. So when the closure of eye exceeds a certain amount then the driver is identified to be sleepy. For implementing this system several OpenCv libraries are used including Haar-cascade. The entire system is implemented using Raspberry-Pi.
