Driver hypovigilance (or under-awakeness) is stated as a major cause of road accidents, especially in highways. This paper presents the concept of the system architecture of an intelligent in-vehicle system-AWAKE system which monitors drivers vigilance and warns the driver according to traffic risk estimation. A WAKE intends to develop and validate an on-board system to improve safety comfort and more efficient use of cars, in particular in terms of alertness enhancement and hypovigilance watch. AWAKE is a project, co-funded by the IST program of the European Commission.
