One of the leading causes of accidents among drivers is drowsiness and fatigue. It is increasing year by year in uninformative manner. There have been many researchers conducted on this topic and one of the prominent conclusions out of those are that a 24 hour sleep deprivation can cause the same amount of effect as a person who has an blood alcohol level of 0.10% which is well above the legal limit. Some of the previous researches on the topic of driver drowsiness detection has been focused mainly on lane deviation detection. In this research we have discussed about a method where we will be using TensorFlow to train images of different facets of a human face and the actions to make the algorithm learn how to detect drowsiness, some of the algorithms used are Deep Learning model, and the machine learning model used is Logistic Regression and Support Vector machine. In this research we have divided the dataset into four main categories namely open eyes, closed eyes, yawn and no yawn. Using these 4 facets we will train the machine learning algorithms to predict the drowsiness of the driver.
