Masters Research: Bio-signal based driver drowsiness detection: A hybrid approach

Driver drowsiness is one of the main reasons for road crashes, which results in a substantial amount of deaths and serious injuries. This project is for Mahmudul Hasan’s Master of Philosophy project, aiming to understand and record physiological and behavioural changes in drowsiness of participants while they perform a simple reaction time task. This project is also to determine how these bio-signals can be used to detect increasing levels of drowsiness in drivers.

The outcomes from the proposed study could eventually benefit the larger population via the increased understanding of the progression of drowsiness using physiological, subjective and behavioural measures.
