Recent Trends in Driver Safety Monitoring Systems: State of the Art and Challenges

Driving in busy highways and roads is becoming complex and challenging, as more cars are hitting the roads. Safe driving requires attentive drivers, quality perception of the environment, awareness of the situation, and critical decision making to react properly in emergency situations. This paper provides an overview on driver safety monitoring systems. The authors study various driver sources of inattention while providing a comprehensive taxonomy. Then, different safety systems that tackle driver inattention are reported. Furthermore, the authors present the new generation of driver monitoring systems within the context of Internet of Cars. Thus, the authors introduce the concept of integrated safety, where smart cars collect information from the driver, the car, the road, and, most importantly, the surrounding cars to build an efficient environment for the driver. The authors conclude by highlighting issues and emerging trends envisioned by the research community.
