Driver performance monitoring uses sensors to measure driver safety, fuel efficiency, and compliance with traffic regulations. Eight indicators associated with the vehicle’s speed, acceleration, jerk, engine rotational speed and driving time are commonly used. Additional useful data can be acquired from the car diagnostic port, such as accelerometer sensors and GPS modules. Driver behaviour and status can also be monitored. For example, cameras can detect instances of texting while driving, and smart hats can identify driver fatigue and issue warnings to advise the driver to rest.
