Driver's fatigue/distraction is one of the most common causes of traffic accidents. The aim of this paper is to develop a real time system to detect anomalous situations while driving. In a learning stage, the user will sit in front of the camera and the system will learn a person-specific facial appearance model (PSFAM) in an automatic manner. The PSFAM will be used to perform gaze detection and eye-activity recognition in a real time based on subspace constraints. Preliminary experiments measuring the PERCLOS index (average time that the eyes are closed) under a variety of conditions are reported.
