Monitoring Driver's Sleepiness On-board for Preventing Road Accidents

Driver sleepiness due to sleep deprivation is a contributing factor of many road accidents. This paper presents the results of a study comparing real on-road driving experiences of subjects who had a normal night's sleep and then being tested again after remaining awake for 24 hours. Significant differences and wave patterns were detected between normal sleep and sleep deprived readings using EOG and EEG measurements. Continuing experiments and observations will be conducted with the aim of creating a successful countermeasure device to warn drivers of their less than optimum driving capabilities.
