Effect of Visual Biofeedback for Awaking Drivers

In recent years, there have been many studies of the detection and the evaluation of drivers’ drowsiness. Although various systems of detecting drowsy driving have been installed in vehicles, only detecting drivers’ drowsiness is not enough to maintain safe driving. Therefore in this study, the authors focused on awaking drivers . Many studies using fragrance, audio or vibration to raise driver vigilance are reported. However, those effects were temporary. Self-control is important to raise vigilance continuously. Then the authors used biofeedback to enable self-control. The authors examined effects on drivers by showing the drowsiness level with the driving simulator. As a result, the progress of driver’s drowsiness was delayed and the number of awaking time was increased by showing the drowsiness level.
