  • Abstract

    Vehicle collision leading to life threatening accidents is a common problem which is incrementing noticeably. This necessitated the need for Driver Assistance Systems (DAS) which helps drivers sense nearby obstacles and drive safely. However, it’s inefficiency in unfavorable weather conditions, overcrowded roads, and low signal penetration rates in India posed many challenges during it’s implementation. In this paper, we present a portable Driver Assistance System that uses augmented reality for it’s working. The headset model comprises of five systems working in conjugation in order to assist the driver. The pedestrian detection module, along with the driver alert system serves to assist the driver in focusing his attention to obstacles in his line of sight. Whereas, the speech recognition, gesture recognition and GPS navigation modules together prevent the driver from getting distracted while driving. In the process of serving these two root causes of accidents, a cost effective, portable and holistic driver assistance system has been developed.
