Driver Drowsiness Detection System for Accident Prevention
Tested

Tested

Major studies have suggested that around 20% of all road accidents are fatigue related. Drowsy Driving can be extremely dangerous, a lot of road accidents are related to the driver falling asleep while driving and subsequently losing control of the vehicle. However, initial signs of fatigue and drowsiness can be detected before a critical situation arises. Driver drowsiness detection is a car safety technology that helps to prevent accidents caused by driver getting drowsy. In this project, we aim to design and develop driver drowsiness detection and use image processing for detecting whether the driver is feeling fatigued and sleepy, using image processing we detect the eyes of the person and detect for how much time the eyes are closed of the driver if the eyes are closed for greater than 20 sec the speaker included in the system will sound an alert thus alerting the driver and waking him up, preventing an accident.
