A Detection of Drowsiness using EEGBased Power Spectrum Analysis

Authors(3) :-D. Biruntha, Mohan Raj, R. Hemalatha

Drowsiness and lack of attention leads to accidents. These accidents can be avoided by monitoring the driver attention level and blinking status. So, in our proposed project work we are analyzing the mental activities of the brain using EEG signals from the Brain- Computer Interface (BCI) technology. This methodology consists of BCI which is the interface between the human brain and the level analyser unit. EEG electrode converts the muscular action into electrical signals and which is sensed by a brainwave sensor and wireless device i.e., BLUETOOTH which transmits the raw data to the MATLAB for level analyser unit (LAU) which analyse the entire status of the driver.
