DRIVER FATIGUE MONITORING
Drowsy driving is a major problem, combination of driving and sleepiness or fatigue often causing tragic results. Responsible for 72,000 crashes, 44,000 injuries, and 800 deaths annually in the US. My project's goal is to support drivers in accident avoidance and to mitigate the consequences of collisions. To do that the system monitors the driver awareness using computer vision.
When driver fatigue or drowsiness detected the system alerts the driver to prevent possible accidents. In case of an accident, the system could notify the ambulance and it can provide relevant information such as:
driver's state (consciousness)
how many passengers were in the vehicle?
is there a kid sitting in the car? etc.
