Exploration and evaluation of individual difference to driving fatigue for high-speed railway: a parametric SVM model based on multidimensional visual cue

High-speed rails have a significantly higher driving safety requirement than other public transport because of more passengers and faster speed. However, the particularity of train driving often leads to railway drivers more susceptible to drowsiness and fatigue, and this fatigue has a distinct personality. Here, the authors analyse the mechanism of individual fatigue generation of different drivers, and use eye movement data collected by non-contact means as an objective measurement, and combine subjective sleepiness assessment to reveal the existence of individual differences in fatigue in high-speed railway driving. Furthermore, a novel driver-specific feature weighted support vector machine (FWSVM) algorithm is proposed to handle the individual differences. In the FWSVM, features are assigned with different weights by the information gain to reflect classification importance and individual effects. The average accuracy of FWSVM is 90.98%, the average sensitivity is 92.01%, and the average specificity is 89.88%, which is better than the classical SVM. Such improvements are attributed to the quantitative evaluation of individual effects by the weighted features. These results can be used as a preliminary study to design a high-speed rail vehicle interface to prevent driver fatigue.
