Abstract

Ever increasing number of fatal traffic accidents around the world can be significantly reduced if modern technology is incorporated within the automobile to assess the physical condition of the driver at regular intervals during the movement of the vehicle and preventive measures are automatically taken for the safety of all concerned entities, both within the vehicle and outside the vehicle. In this paper, design of an eye blinking detector system is presented which can monitor the physical state of the driver at regular intervals during his/her driving and, if needed, can raise an audible alarm within the vehicle to alert the driver or initiate application of vehicle's braking system. In case of multiple failures to raise the alertness level of the driver, the designed system can automatically inform the law enforcement authorities about the rogue driver on the road. The prototype of the design has been successfully implemented which leads to the conclusion that such a system can help in keeping the driver awake at all times while driving and hence facilitate in avoidance of any traffic accidents involving driver's alertness.
