Algorithm Design for Driver Attention Monitoring
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The concept driver distraction is diffuse and no clear definition exists, which causes troubles when it comes to driver attention monitoring. This thesis takes an approach where eyetracking data from experienced drivers along with radar data has been used and analysed in an attempt to set up adaptive rules of how and how often the driver needs to attend to different objects in its surroundings, which circumvents the issue of not having a clear definition of driver distraction. In order to do this, a target tracking algorithm has been implemented that refines the output from the radar, subsequently used together with the eye-tracking data to in a statistical manner, in the long term, try to answer the question for how long is the driver allowed to look away in different driving scenarios? The thesis presents a proof of concept of this approach, and the results look promising.
