views of a common citizen about problem of drivers sleeping at night while driving.
Road safety has become a major concern in all parts of world and every bit of efforts are taken by the government to control accidents that are often caused by over speeding, entering into wrong lane etc..Once such concern is small nap taken by drivers while driving due to their tight scheduled which often leads to severe accidents.
Therefore to prevent such accidents, we are inspired to make an alerting system that will alert the driver if he/she fall into sleep.
Assuming the upright position as correct position we'll consider this position at 0 degree and if a person fall asleep it will tend to fall forward which ultimately increases the angle to say 30 degree. An increase in angle will activate the buzzer system and a sharp and an irritating noise will beep hence awakening the driver.
According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that the drowsy driving causes more than 100000 car crashes and kills more than 1500 people each year.
Tight schedule of truck drivers often made them to fall asleep during their working hours which lead to severe accidents and hence causing innocent people to lose their lives.
