Abstract

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death. While lane departure warning, blind spot warning, and driver attention monitoring systems for avoiding collisions have been in development for quite sometime, to date mostly luxury cars are only equipped with these safety features. As a cheaper and ubiquitous alternative, we explore how a smartphone can assist an inattentive driver by leveraging its front and back cameras apart from other sensors. The challenge, however, is given the resource constraints of a smartphone, how quickly and accurately can it detect an unintended maneuver and alert the driver. In this paper, we describe our on-going attempt to address this challenge.
