DMS or the Driver Monitoring System is an innovative safety system to monitor driver awareness in all road & traffic environments. A blend of CMOS based camera sensor & infrared sensors monitors facial & iris movements continuously.
The Driver monitoring system uses the CMOS sensor & Infrared sensors to monitor the driver's awareness by continuously examining the facial and Iris movements of the driver
The system uses a CMOS IR based camera sensor along with the IR LED's to detect the drivers attentiveness.
The camera monitors the driver's eyes, face position, drivers action as to smoking or on the phone and decides if the driver is fully focused on driving or is drowsy or distracted.
Accordingly it captures the picture or video of the driver , alarms the driver and send the data to the cloud.
It also has an IMU using which the driving pattern can be determined and flagged for harsh acceleration, sudden braking or dangerous maneuvers.
Overspeeding of the vehicle is part of the same. Accelerator can also be cut off if needed when the driver is drowsy
Using deep convolutional neural networks and machine learning, the camera monitors the eyes and driver behavior to make a judgment if the driver is sleepy or distracted. It first use Open CL to construc tan image and with the use of image pyramid, it defines the face detection using the database of faces in the cloud. With deeper analysis of driver's face for eye localization - eye open and close can be determined. Images captured are of VGA resolution with loseless JPEG compression - it is stored in the device memory if there is no connectivity and on resume of network it is sent to the cloud on FIFO basis along with the complete tracking of the vehicle.
The device is fitted on windshield or on the corner panel of the bus in way that the camera looks at the driver face without obstructing his view.
