Abstract

The main aim of this paper is to propose an objective assessment of the likelihood of automobile accidents, by computing probability of collision (POC) from the driver's reaction time (RT) distribution. Since the driver's RT distribution is strongly dependent on his/her arousal level, we measured eye-opening rate (EOR) from real-time image analysis of the driver's eye, and estimated the RT distributions separately for different EORs. To examine the reliability of our proposed method, we conducted an experiment in which RTs and EOR were measured while participants were driving a driving simulator. The results show that, with other parameters constant, the resulting POC is higher for low EOR (e.g., low arousal level), as expected.
