Abstract

Driver’s drowsiness is identified as one of the main reasons for road mishaps. It leads to severe physical injuries, loss of human life, and loss of money. It is estimated that 40% of highway accidents occur due to driver dozing off [1] while driving. The usage of driver drowsiness detection system will help in evading the significant mishaps. This paper presents a system to identify driver’s drowsiness and raise an alarm to wake him. It is an attempt to avoid an accident caused by the inevitable sleep as early as possible by alerting the driver when he falls asleep. The symptoms of driver drowsiness can be detected more precisely and within a short time to avoid a car accident by just monitoring eyes. The proposed method involves continuous monitoring of driver’s face with the help of a Raspberry Pi camera which is then processed to detect eye landmarks. The eye aspect ratio is calculated with help of the obtained eye coordinates to detect closure of the eye. If the closure of the eye is detected for a threshold number of times, the driver is drowsy. A 2 Volt buzzer connected to Raspberry Pi is automatically activated and alerts the driver.
