Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are electronic systems that help driver while driving or parking the vehicle. Motivation for ADAS solution comes from the research on drowsy driving conducted by US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The research estimated approximately 100,000 crashes each year caused due to driver fatigue, lack of sleep and no clear vision on rainy & foggy days. The solution applies various deep learning technologies to offer various benefits to the driver that help a driver when he is feeling drowsy, or the visibility is poor, in turn reducing the risk and providing a safer driving experience. The new innovation in the edge computing platform have made it easy to adopt ADAS solution on a mobile platform. The drowsiness detection model can also be extended to monitor behaviors of a person.
