It is a difficult problem to make drivers drowsiness detection meet the needs of real time in embedded system; meanwhile, there are still some unsolved problems like drivers' head tilted and size of eye image not large enough. This paper proposes an efficient method to solve these problems for eye state identification of drivers' drowsiness detection in embedded system which based on image processing techniques. This method break traditional way of drowsiness detection to make it real time, it utilizes face detection and eye detection to initialize the location of driver's eyes; after that an object tracking method is used to keep track of the eyes; finally, we can identify drowsiness state of driver with PERCLOS by identified eye state. Experiment results show that it makes good agreement with analysis.
