Abstract: Number of accidents occurs now a days due to the drowsiness of driver. Therefore to assist the driver with the problem of drowsiness, the system must be design to carefully developed to provide an interface and interaction the make sense for the driver. This article introduces a new approach towards detection of drives’ drowsiness based on yawning detection. The main aim is to reduce the number of accidents occurred due to drivers fatigue and hence increases the road safety. The special gestures of body and face are used as the sign of driver fatigue, including yawning, eye tiredness and mouth movement, and it indicate that the driver is no more in a proper driving condition. This involves several steps including the real time detection and tracking of driver’s face detection, tracking of the mouth contour, eye and the detection of yawning based on measuring both the rate and the amount of changes in the mouth contour area, Eye detection using Eye Map.
