Poor alertness experienced by individuals may lead to serious accidents that impact on people’s health and safety. To prevent such accidents, an efficient automatic alertness states identification is required. Sparse representation-based classification has recently gained a lot of popularity. A classifier from this class typically comprises three stages: dictionary learning, sparse coding and class assignment. Gini index, a recently proposed method, was shown to possess a number of properties that make it a better sparsity measure than the widely used \( l_{0} \)- and \( l_{1} \)-norms. This paper investigates whether these properties also lead to a better classifier. The proposed classifier, unlike the existing sparsity-based ones, embeds the Gini index in all stages of the classification process. To assess its performance, the new classifier was used to automatically identify three alertness levels, namely awake, drowsy, and sleep using EEG signal. The obtained results show that the new classifier outperforms those based on \( l_{0} \)- and \( l_{1} \)-norms.

The aim of the paper is to automatically select the optimal EEG rhythm/channel combinations capable of classifying human alertness states. Four alertness states were considered, namely ‘engaged’, ‘calm’, ‘drowsy’ and ‘asleep’. The features used in the automatic selection are the energies associated with the conventional rhythms, \(\delta , \theta , \alpha , \beta\) and \(\gamma\), extracted from overlapping windows of the different EEG channels. The selection process consists of two stages. In t...

Driver drowsiness is a major cause of fatal accidents, injury, and property damage, and has become an area of substantial research attention in recent years. The present study proposes a method to detect drowsiness in drivers which integrates features of electrocardiography (ECG) and electroencephalography (EEG) to improve detection performance. The study measures differences between the alert and drowsy states from physiological data collected from 22 healthy subjects in a driving simulator-bas...

At present, the sparse representation-based classification (SRC) methods of electroencephalograph (EEG) signal analysis have become an important approach for studying brain science. SRC methods mean that the target data is sparsely represented on the basis of a fixed dictionary or learned dictionary, and classified based on the reconstruction criteria or the corresponding features extracted. SRC methods have been used to analyze the EEG signals of epilepsy, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Al...

This study develops a real-time drowsiness detection system based on grayscale image processing and PERCLOS to determine if the driver is fatigued. The proposed system comprises three parts: first, it calculates the approximate position of the driver's face in grayscale images, and then uses a small template to analyze the eye positions, second, it uses the data from the previous step and PERCLOS to establish a fatigue model, and finally, based on the driver's personal fatigue model, the system ...

In this paper, we present a vehicle active safety model for vehicle speed control based on driver vigilance detection using low-cost, comfortable, wearable electroencephalographic (EEG) sensors and sparse representation. The proposed system consists of three main steps, namely wireless wearable EEG collection, driver vigilance detection, and vehicle speed control strategy. First of all, a homemade low-cost comfortable wearable brain-computer interface (BCI) system with eight channels is designed...

PhysioNet Sleep EDF database has been the most popular source of data used for developing and testing many automatic sleep staging algorithms. However, the recordings from this database has been used in an inconsistent fashion. For example, arbitrary selection of start and end times from long term recordings, data-hypnogram mismatches, different performance metrics and hypnogram conversion from R&K to AASM. All these differences result in different data sections and performance metrics being use...

In this paper, we propose a multimodal verification system integrating face and ear based on sparse representation based classification (SRC). The face and ear query samples are first encoded separately to derive sparsity-based match scores, and which are then combined with sum-rule fusion for verification. Apart from validating the encouraging performance of SRC-based multimodal verification, this paper also dedicates to provide a clear understanding about the characteristics of SRC-based biome...
