Abstract: In this paper, a vision-based system is proposed to monitor and detect drowsiness of the driver in real-time. The system uses the histogram of oriented gradient-based face detector alongside with a facial landmark detector, which is use to extract eye areas. The next phase computes the eye aspect ratio using the Euclidean distance formula. Using a threshold value of the eye ratio, the system can now identify if a driver is drowsy. For evaluation and experiment, the system was tested by fifty drivers of different vehicle types including car, bus, delivery truck, and van.
