Deep learning has been studied extensively for driver drowsiness detection using video data. However, since the proposed deep learning methods are computationally cumbersome, the commercial driver drowsiness detection methods are still using hand-crafted features such as lane deviation and percentage of eye closure. This study investigates a deep learning model that provides a fair drowsiness detection performance with a lightweight architecture. In the proposed method, Dlib library was used to detect the driver's face in individual frames of video data. The detected faces are fed into a pre-defined convolutional neural network architecture. Then, a long short-term memory network was used to capture the temporal information between the frame sequences to assess the state of drowsiness. The proposed model achieves a detection accuracy of 80% in a popular benchmark dataset. It was also verified that the model could be implemented on a commercial and inexpensive development board with a frame rate of 5 frames per second.
