Abstract

Based on statistical analyses on the causes of road traffic accidents and the biomedical factors directly impacting the driver’s behavior, a software module for drivers’ predispositions evaluation has been developed.

The module was based on selected biomedical signals registered in real-time during arranged car travel on a route of ca. 400 km. The tests were conducted on a group of 17 people aged 26–45.

The designed and tested Matlab module was eventually migrated to C, enabling compilation and running on a dedicated hardware platform.

The results prove that: the basic physiological parameters differ at the beginning and at the end of a driver’s working week; there is a correlation between the driver’s age and the average value of the driver’s BIO indicator; and that it is possible to assess in real-time the driver’s predispositions to continue driving.

The BIO software module shows unprecedented end-to-end approach to evaluating the driver’s biomedical condition, based on a broad range of signals.
