Abstract:  This paper is aimed at presenting the main technical aspects of the video recorder developed to detect fatigue symptoms that appear while driving a car. The principle of operation is based on filming the driver’s face illuminated with light in the near-infrared band and detecting changes in the location of the characteristic points on the face, which may indicate fatigue. An off-the-shelf camera was used as an element of the detector, whereas another part were the illuminator and software created in-house. The detector’s supporting frame was designed to be made using 3D printing technology. The application areas of the detector include monitoring car drivers and other vehicle operators, e.g. rail vehicles, in the context of drowsiness and fatigue during driving.
