Poster summary

As the traffic problem increases, we are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of mentally stressed and angry drivers. Driver is the most important and valuable component of a vehicle. That is why, it is essential to monitor driver’s stress and anger level for safety driving. Physiological parameters such as heart rate, heart rate variability, respiration rate, respiration waveform, will be monitored using a body sensor network consists of multiple physiological sensors placed at the driver’s body. When a driver’s stress or anger level reaches the danger level, an alarm notification will be send to neighboring vehicles, or roadside infrastructure and most importantly nearby traffic police emergency service using V2V/V2I communications for VANETs (Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks) to restrict the vehicle for avoiding collisions. The proposed scheme will be useful for intelligent transportation systems (ITS) to improve the road safety by distributing vital physiological information from a body sensor network.
