Mobile Application to Detect Drowsiness and Alert driver
Life saving ideas are considered to be the crucial arena in today’s growing trends. But these ideas despite being
accurate, is not easily accessible unless we present it as an application in mobile. As per the RTI 60% of the accidents today
occur due to driver fatigue (drowsiness). In this paper we provide an application that alerts the driver if his eyes are closed
for more than 3 seconds. Not necessarily sleep, eyes closed for more than 3 seconds for any reason can turn fatal, especially
in monotonous highways. If the eyes are not detected to be open for more than 7 seconds, a loud alarm is played by the
mobile application. If the eyes do not open even after 10 seconds then the current GPS location is sent to the pre-stored
contacts from the database of the application.
