DRIVE PROJECT V1004 (DREAM). MONITORING DRIVER STATUS: THE STATE OF THE ART

The report examines the feasibility of developing a device for monitoring driver status. The assessment is based on a detailed literature survey and analysis. Each of the partners has evaluated the literature in their own specialist area. A review of the theoretical background shows that the concept of stress and strain is not well suited to applied development. A number of available devices are reviewed, but although none is without serious deficiencies, evidence is given to show that the development of a workable device should be feasible. Factors that could influence driver status are examined. Methods of measuring this influence are discussed and the possibilities of data processing and multisensory systems are assessed. The potential of neural networks, capable of coping with the large number of signals that may be expected, is investigated. The results will aid the determination of future work required for the development of performance measures and sensors that could be incorporated in a vehicle mounted monitoring device.
