This paper presents a prototype to detect fatigue in drivers and helps in avoiding accidents. One of the reasons that accidents occur commonly is due to sleepiness during driving. This sleepiness or fatigue results in 30 to 40 % accident that usually occurs. It is estimated that the probability of meeting with an accident increases four to six times when the driver feels drowsy. Detection of fatigue is important to avoid accidents and thereby saving many lives everyday. This paper proposes a better fatigue or drowsiness detection system to that of existing system today. This method of drowsiness involves a minimum intrusive method of detection. Hence, the driver would experiences very less inconvenience. Once the detection is completed this prototype also alerts the driver, regulates the speed of the vehicle if fatigue is detected. Thus, avoiding the accidents due to fatigue and saving many lives.
