Driver alertness monitoring with seat foil sensor

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional

Abstract

We developed a pressure-sensitive seat foil sensor for the detection of a driver's body movements. The sensor was used as one input for the automatic drowsiness alarm system together with an eyelid movement and head nodding indicator. We could also measure heart rate and respiration with the seat foil sensor, e.g. for operators in a process control room, but the external vibration prevented physiological measurements in a moving car.
