Advanced Driver Fatigue ResearchWebsite or Online Data - 2007
This report summarizes the findings of the Advanced Driver Fatigue Research project conducted by the Center for Intelligent Systems Research (CISR) of the George Washington University (GWU), and funded by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). The goal of this project was to develop an unobtrusive drowsy driver detection system for commercial motor vehicles. CISR previously developed an effective drowsiness detection system for automobiles that relied solely on the drivers steering patterns for input. This projects evaluation of this system confirms that this approach is equally valid for truck drivers, despite the differences between truck and automobile driving. The drowsy driver detection system exhibited expected false positive and false negative readings and an ideal warning rate before crashes.
