Abstract: Drowsiness is major cause of accidents. So, this drowsiness detection system alerts the drowsy drivers in order to reduce the risk of potential accidents. The proposed system uses computer vision and image processing technology of MATLAB for detecting the drowsiness. MATLAB detects if eyes are closed or open using various image processing techniques performed using Viola-Jones face features detecting algorithm and skin y,cb,cr values detection function, converting image into a binary image which was further employed to extract eye characteristics, and its closing frequency, determining drowsiness.
