Sarbjit Sing Kaur, Martin Eriksson, Nikolaos Papanikolopoulos

June 1999

Report no. Mn/DOT 1999-30



Monitoring the driver's symptoms can help determine driver fatigue early enough to prevent accidents due to lack of awareness. This report describes advances toward a non-intrusive approach for real-time detection of driver fatigue. It uses a video camera that points directly toward the driver's face and monitors the driver's eye to detect micro-sleeps, or short periods of sleep of about three-to-four seconds.
