The Three-in-One Vehicle Operator Sensor envisioned by Northrop Grumman uses non-intrusive eye tracking and image analysis to perform the following functions: (1) Drowsy Driver Recognition; (2) Anti-Theft Protection; and (3) Alcohol Impaired Driver Recognition. This Innovations Deserving Exploratory Analysis (IDEA) project successfully demonstrated Drowsy Driver Recognition algorithms. Development and initial testing was accomplished with the use of data gathered in the Northrop Grumman driving simulator. The algorithms were further tested and demonstrated using imagery of drowsy drivers obtained from a major domestic automobile manufacturer.
