Design and Implementation of a Driver Drowsiness Detection System - A Practical Approach

Aleksandar Čolić, Oge Marques, Borko Furht

Abstract

This paper describes the steps involved in designing and implementing a driver drowsiness detection system based on visual input (driver’s face and head). It combines off-the-shelf software components for face detection, human skin color detection, and eye state (open vs. closed) classification in a novel way. Preliminary results show that the system is reliable and tolerant to many real-world constraints.
