Driver Drowsiness, Driver Distraction, Driver Fatigue and Workload are among the most significant factors contributing to traffic accidents that result in the loss of thousands of lives and billions of dollars annually. The problems have worsened with ever-growing traffic conditions, increasing number of electronic devices in cars and other commercial vehicles that compete for the driver's attention, and the ever-increasing distractions both inside and outside the vehicle that divert the driver's attention. These problems have caused major safety concerns and have attracted the attention of government, academia and private industry.


Research community has been actively involved to address these problems and various techniques/systems have been developed over the years to perform real time online driver status monitoring. The objectives of this special session are.



The session will feature invited speakers and panel discussions. Original research that focuses on the non-intrusive and real time monitoring of driver fatigue, Driver drowsiness, Driver distraction, Driver workload, Inattention and other similar aspects is being solicited. If you are interested in participating in this special session or to be an invited speaker please contact the session organizers.
