and a real-time drowsiness detection algorithm based on our unsupervised approach was implemented in the embedded signal processing module. Realtime drowsiness monitoring is important to avoid traffic accidents.OBJECTIVES We describe a method for the classification of sleep/wake states based on cardiorespiratory signals produced by wearable sensors. The method was conceived in view of its applicability to a wearable sleepiness monitoring device. . A wireless physiological signal acquisition module and an embedded signal processing module was designed.

y Wireless physiological signal acquisition module and y Embedded Signal Processing module y .EXISTING PAPER The present system consists of EEG electrode.

Pressure sensor Signal amplifier Embedded Module Embedded Module .PROPOSED SYSTEM The proposed system uses the pressure sensor instead of using EEG pulse form the brain. The pressure sensor senses the breathing pressure and discriminates the condition of drowsiness and active mode of the human. The output is given to the signal amplifier and then to the embedded module for calculation and to the output system such as automatic brake system and the alarm system.
