A novel approach to Drowsiness Detection for Driver
In this paper, a drowsiness-detection system based on eye blink and head movement is proposed and implemented. On driver’s drowsiness detection, the system will a) alert the driver via a wake call (Buzzer), b) reduce the speed and stabilize the vehicle driven by driver. It may also detect the occurrence of an accident and find accident location using crash sensor and GPRS respectively and notify emergency contact about the location of accident with the help of GSM communication module. This system monitors eye movements and head movements of drivers to warn them when they fall asleep. The driver’s eye is continuously monitored using an IR sensor and head movement using an accelerometer. The normal eye blink rate will have no effect on the output of the system.
