Driver fatigue and drowsiness are two fatal causes of car accidents. This paper proposes a driver drowsiness detection algorithm (DDA) based on both real-time deformable face tracking to be used in active safety driving. For face tracking, the proposed algorithm monitors driver's facial movements and head gesture using the active shape model (ASM). The DDA simultaneously monitors the driver's alertness using extracted facial features from both eye and mouth. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm provides high drowsiness detection rate.
