Drowsy Driver Detection using Representation Learning
Abstract—Drowsy Driver Detection using Representation Learning. The advancement of computing technology over the years has provided assistance to drivers mainly in the form of intelligent vehicle systems. Driver fatigue is a significant factor in a large number of vehicle accidents. Thus, driver drowsiness detection has been considered a major potential area so as to prevent a huge number of sleep < Final Year Projects 2016 > induced road accidents. This paper proposes a vision based intelligent algorithm to detect driver drowsiness. Previous approaches are generally based on blink rate, eye closure, yawning, eye brow shape and other hand engineered facial features. The proposed algorithm makes use of features learnt using convolutional neural network so as to explicitly capture various latent facial features and the complex non-linear feature interactions.
