Samenvatting

Drowsiness is a serious problem for drivers which causes many accidents every day. It is estimated that drowsiness is the cause of four deaths and 100 injuries per day in the United States. In this paper two methods have been developed to detect drowsiness based on features of ocular artifacts in EEG signals. The ocular artifacts are derived from the EEG signals by using Canonical Correlation Analysis (BSS-CCA). Wavelet transforms are used to automatically select components containing eye blinks. Sixteen features are then calculated from the eye blink and used for drowsiness detection. The first method is based on linear regression, the second on fuzzy detection. For the first method, the drowsiness level is correctly detected in 72% of the epochs. The second method uses fuzzy detection and detects the drowsiness correctly in 65% of the epochs. The best results are obtained when using one single eye blink feature.
