Context Aware Driver Behavior Detection System in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
At the present time cars and other private vehicles are being used daily by large numbers of people. The biggest problem regarding the increased use of private transport is the rising number of fatalities that are occurring as a consequence of accidents on the roads; the associated expense and related dangers have been recognized as a serious problem that is being confronted by modern society. This paper focuses on developing a novel and non-intrusive driver behavior detection system using a context-aware system in VANET to detect abnormal behaviors exhibited by drivers, and to warn other vehicles on the road so as to prevent accidents from happening. A five-layer context aware architecture is proposed which is able to collect contextual information about the driving environment, perform reasoning about certain and uncertain contextual information and react upon that information.
