Abstract


An instrument to objectively measure driver’s fatigue and to monitor approaching micro-sleep was designed, manufactured and tested. The instrument is based on a simple infrared sensor, which consists of an emitter and detector and is based on the different reflectivity of the eye and the skin of the eyelid. The instrument records eyelid activity as the number of blinks. The device has been put into practice in the form of lensless glasses and tested in an automobile simulator at the Faculty of Transport, Czech Technical University in Prague. The results show that the system was reasonably efficient at detecting fatigue, and therefore potentially micro-sleep. However, currently it is not possible to measure the effectiveness of the system and evaluate the results in real-time.
