Abstract

In this paper, we propose an efficient way of measuring the level of eye blinking under various illumination conditions (such as day and night) for drowsiness detection systems which use a single camera. Determining the level of drowsiness by using eye blinking, it is an important way of detection eye positions and measuring eyelid movements. For robust eye detection under various illumination conditions, we propose a simple illumination compensation algorithm and a novel way of measuring of eyelid movements. In order to estimate the performance of the proposed methods, we collected video data during real driving situations under various illumination conditions, such as during the day and during the night. Experimental results demonstrate an average eye detection rate of over 98% and an accurate measurement of eye blinking when using the proposed drowsiness detection system.
