Driver Monitoring 2
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?
To collect informations about the driver and its behaviours the system could use the frontal camera of the mobile phone. This camera usually looks towards the driver while the navigation application is running on the phone.
Right now this demo is running on my laptop. I’m working hard to make it run on android and iOS this way anyone could use it.
