Physiological signal based detection of driver hypovigilance using higher order spectra

Physiological signal based detection of driver hypovigilance using higher order spectra In this work, the focus is on developing a system that can detect hypovigilance, which includes both drowsiness and inattention, using Electrocardiogram (ECG) and Electromyogram (EMG) signals. Drowsiness has been manipulated by allowing the driver to drive monotonously at a limited speed for long hours and inattention was manipulated by asking the driver to respond to phone calls and short messaging services. ECG and EMG signals along with the... [Lire la suite]
