Drowsiness Detection Algorithm
The Drowsiness Detection algorithm employs vision based driver fatigue detection methods.It is a natural, non-intrusive and convenient technique to monitor driver’s vigilance. It incorporates the popular method of eye blink frequency or state of eye for the person’s drowsiness detection. The algorithm has been used to develop a prototype drowsiness detection system, which monitors the open or closed state of driver’s eyes and sounds an alarm when he/she is drowsy. The algorithm has been optimized for several platforms for real time applications.
