Paper Abstract

In recent years, researches of the facial part acquisition system for the automobile driver support has been made actively. So we are developing a drivers' support system which uses a camera instead of touching with the drivers. In this paper, we use a special photography method to remove the background which disturbs the facial part acquisition. And we propose the new method by which only the face region of a driver is stably obtained in the car. Further, the eye region is detected by using the obtained facial region image in order to apply to the detection of the drowsiness.
