The drowsiness of the driver and rash driving are the major causes of road accidents, which result in loss of valuable life, and deteriorate the safety in the road traffic. Reliable and precise driver drowsiness systems are required to prevent road accidents and to improve road traffic safety. Various driver drowsiness detection systems have been designed with different technologies which have an affinity towards the unique parameter of detecting the drowsiness of the driver. This paper proposes a novel model of multi-level distribution of detecting the driver drowsiness using the Convolution Neural Networks (CNN) followed by the emotion analysis. The emotion analysis, in this proposed model, analyzes the driver’s frame of mind which identifies the motivating factors for different driving patterns. These driving patterns were analyzed based on the acceleration system, speed of the vehicle, Revolutions per Minute (RPM), facial recognition of the driver. The facial pattern of the driver is treated with 2D Convolution Neural Network (CNN) to detect the behavior and driver’s emotion. The proposed model is implemented using OpenCV and the experimental results prove that the proposed model detects the driver’s emotion and drowsiness more effectively than the existing technologies.
