THRSL develops driver drowsiness detection system

Gurgaon-based Hi-tech Robotic Systemz Ltd (THRSL) has developed an indigenous drowsiness alert system which will help reduce the threat of road accidents caused by drivers falling asleep at the wheel. The safety device, Novus Aware, now undergoing tests, has the capability to send vehicle and driver attention data for central monitoring via the cloud.

Essentially, Novus Aware is a vision-based system which detects the human face and analyses different facial expressions and cues like eye closure, abnormal blink frequency, and head jerk & yawn to estimate the driver’s attention level. It raises a warning in the form of acoustic, haptic or photonic signals if the attention level falls below a certain threshold.
