This algorithm employs vision based driver fatigue detection methods and 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 detecting the drowsiness of the person. 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 application.
- Detection of eye, eye movement, blinking
- Algorithms optimized for different platforms
- Automotive Safety – detecting drowsiness and alerting the driver
- Games – Gaming applications based on blinking frequency of the eye
