Description

  • The The invention relates to a method and a device for monitoring the attention of a driver of a motor vehicle.
  • From the publication with the publication number DE 197 34 307 A1 a method and a device is known with which the vehicle behavior of a driver-controlled motor vehicle can be monitored and influenced. The device described there has a device for determining the viewing direction of the driver of the motor vehicle. The viewing direction determined by the device is then compared with the direction of travel of the motor vehicle. Depending on the result of the comparison, a warning signal or an actuating signal is generated. The actuating signal influences the behavior of the motor vehicle. Warned by the warning signal of the driver.
  • The Direction of travel, with the line of sight of the motor vehicle driver is compared with a device for determining the direction of travel determined. This can, for example, data of a steering angle sensor, a yaw rate sensor or a sensor for measuring the lateral acceleration process to determine the current direction of travel of the vehicle. The current direction of travel and the current direction of the driver compared and provided the direction of view and the direction of travel around deviate from one another by a predetermined amount and also the length of time during which the two sizes diverge from one another by a predetermined amount, It is assumed that the motor vehicle driver is not is attentive.
  • The current direction of view of the driver and the current The direction of travel can also be seen as the actual viewing direction and target viewing direction denote that are compared with each other.
  • With the solution published in said document Only a limited useful result is achieved. In many cases, it is true that the actual direction and the target viewing direction fall apart. In the known solution this is tried over it to achieve that the viewing direction and the target viewing direction by a certain amount or during a particular one Duration may differ from each other. The driving situation in which the driver is, will be there but not considered.
  • Of the Invention is therefore the object of a method and a Propose a device taking into account the driving situation, to judge the driver's attention.
  • This is achieved by a method according to claim 1.
  • One The method according to the invention comprises the following steps: First, the actual viewing direction, that is the direction in which the driver looks, determined. Now a target viewing direction is determined. The target viewing direction is the direction in which the driver look should be to guide the vehicle safely. The actual viewing direction is then judged by the target line of sight to the attention or to determine the inattention of the motor vehicle driver. It is also determined a timing within which a Inattention of the motor vehicle driver can be tolerated can. Upon detection of inattention of the motor vehicle driver the period of inattention is recorded and timed compared. Once the time is exceeded, the Vehicle driver alerted. The special feature of the invention Method is that the desired viewing direction and / or the timing depending on a position of the direction indicator, information about one lying in front of the vehicle Roadmap and / or Information from a Lane Keeping Assist (Lane departure warning system) are determined. The timing may also depend on the viewing direction. Especially looking into one of the rearview mirrors may be the time default be increased, as looks in a rearview mirror a sign of attention.
  • By the inclusion of further according to the invention Information, is the driving situation in which the driver is better captured. This makes it possible to set the time for the period in which inattention is tolerated depending on the driving situation. Furthermore can the target viewing direction depending on the driving situation including the road ahead of the vehicle be determined, the closer to reality to be introduced.
  • According to the invention, the desired viewing direction can be described by two angle sizes. For description, the elevation angle and the area angle can serve. In particular, the surface angle of the target viewing direction can be changed by means of a correction value. The correction value can take into account, for example, individual characteristics of the motor vehicle driver or of the vehicle. Thus, for example, it can be taken into account whether a vehicle driver generally prefers a certain head posture, for example because of poor eyesight in one eye. It can also be considered whether the vehicle is a right-hand drive or a left-hand drive, or whether the vehicle in a country with Rechtsver or traveling on the left. A consideration of the parameter right-hand traffic or left-hand traffic makes sense since motor vehicle drivers often tend to observe the right-hand side of the road in right-hand traffic and the left-hand side of the road in left-hand traffic. This particular attention to the edge of the road usually has an increased viewing direction to the right or left to the roadside result. Such behavior is not inattention but shows the special attention of the driver.
  • The individual head posture of a driver can according to the inventive method by an initialization drive be determined. It is also an ongoing investigation conceivable.
  • The special consideration of the position of the direction indicator is also useful. If a direction indicator is set, is expected that the driver's special attention Turns to the vehicle side, in which he wants to direct the vehicle. This is the case both in a lane change (shoulder view) as also when turning around a bend (observation of cycle paths, pedestrian paths as well as the road in which the driver turns).
  • about the consideration of the mentioned quantities in determining the desired viewing direction can of course as in the known method, the yaw rate, the steering angle and / or the wheel speeds and the front wheel angle be taken into account. At low vehicle speeds is often less attention of the driver necessary to observe the driving situation than at high speeds, which is easy from the different braking distances at different Explain speeds.
  • At the determine the desired viewing direction according to an inventive Procedure can be the information about the front of the vehicle lying roadway provided by a navigation system become. Likewise, it is possible that information about the road ahead of the motor vehicle be provided to a camera system. Straight the road has a great influence on the viewing direction of the vehicle driver. So the driver is at the end of a straight piece and before entering a bend already his look in the Curve, without the steering wheel is turned, the vehicle to one or the other side or other sensor sizes make a statement that a cornering is imminent.
  • Especially In determining the timing can also be information a navigation system about the road environment be taken into account. For example, it can be crucial whether the motor vehicle driver with the motor vehicle in City traffic or moving on a country road. Both in the City traffic as well as in the country road traffic are same Speeds possible, with the attention in the City traffic should be significantly higher than at a ride on a country road. Accordingly, the Timing in city traffic usually be shorter than when driving on rural roads.
  • It However, more information in the Determine the time specification. So should a driver when passing by a children's playground or at a school special Focus attention on the roadside. Are information about Playgrounds, schools or the like deposited in the navigation system, This information may help in determining the timing incorporated.
  • One inventive method can be configured Be that monitoring the attention of a vehicle driver at idle of the transmission, with high longitudinal acceleration for example due to emergency braking or at low speeds of the motor vehicle is suspended. In idle, this moves Vehicle does not leave, therefore the driver does not have to necessarily attention to the traffic judge. When emergency braking in dangerous situations, it can of course be that the driver does not look in the determined target viewing direction directed. The dangerous situation to be observed can be in a whole other direction than in the desired direction. So one Warning due to a detected inattention not the driver additionally irritated, may or should be in such situations to be subjected to surveillance of attention. at low speeds, as is common for example in a parking space search it is also not very meaningful to pay attention to To evaluate the driver as this is his view predominantly searching along the rows of vehicles, the he passes through.
  • According to claim 13 becomes a device for monitoring attention proposed by the driver, in particular suitable is, according to a method of the invention work.
  • One inventive method is in the drawing described in more detail. It shows:
  • 1 a flow diagram of a method according to the invention.
  • To a system startup and while running a Inventive device for monitoring the attention of a driver is checked whether to monitor the attention of the driver shall be. In the invention shown in the figure one Procedures are tested to three deactivation criteria. The deactivation criteria are too slow a speed, Idling of the gearbox or excessive longitudinal acceleration or too long a longitudinal delay. As soon as one of these criteria is met, no monitoring takes place the attention of the motor vehicle driver and thus also no warning.
  • Become If all three deactivation criteria are not met, the Attention of the driver monitored. This is done with a known image processing device the face the motor vehicle driver observed and recorded. The camera data are processed, in particular filtered, to the viewing direction to determine the motor vehicle driver. It will be there in particular the elevation angle of the gaze and the area angle of the look. Furthermore, the image processing device provides Trust values that indicate how trustworthy the determined surface and elevation angles are. The background for the confidence values is that the image processing device under certain environmental conditions, for example in bright, the face of the motor vehicle leader überstrahlendem Light or at least partial obscuration of the face of the Motor vehicle driver, no reliable statement about the viewing direction is possible. Also extremely fast movements of the Motor vehicle drivers can cause that no reliable detection of the viewing direction is possible. Similarly, light reflections in spectacle wearers or Sunglasses complicate a determination of the line of sight or to make impossible. All these possible causes lead to errors in the detection of the viewing direction to a deterioration of the trustworthiness.
  • Based these three values supplied by the image processing device, which define the actual viewing direction of the motor vehicle driver, the evaluation of the attention of the motor vehicle driver. A rating is omitted if the confidence levels are so bad are that a meaningful evaluation is not possible.
  • The Evaluation of the actual angle of view is essentially based on a Target viewing direction, which is also determined. In the target viewing direction different parameters flow in For one thing, it can be In addition to vehicle data such as the speed, the steering angle or the differential speed of the wheels, the front wheel angle or the yaw rate. On the other hand, also parameters be taken into account, which has a prediction about allow the rest of the journey. These are for example the status of a direction indicator, information from a lane depature warning system and a navigation system. If a direction indicator is set, is expected that the view of the driver in the Direction wanders in which he wishes to turn off. Especially the driver will look around to pedestrians and to watch cyclists. Represents a lane depature system that a lane is left, for example because of a lane change during overtaking, is also expected that the look of the driver in the rearview mirror or over the shoulder goes backwards. About the navigation system Finally, the road ahead of the vehicle be predicted and thus be recognized that the driver his Look into a curve before the vehicle turns into the corner has been steered. These data together result in a desired viewing direction of the driver. This target viewing direction can finally still be influenced with a correction value, the individual Behavior of the driver, special characteristics the vehicle is considered or taken into account, whether the vehicle is driving on the right or on the left is. Finally, when evaluating the actual viewing direction based on the target viewing direction including the one to be considered Correction value determined that the driver is attentive, takes place no warning.
  • Becomes in the evaluation of attention, however, found that the Driver is inattentive, it will be checked how long the inattention stops. The time of inattention exceeds one Timing a warning is issued. The length of the Timing is previously determined by the invention Device set.
  • The specification of the time specification can be based on different criteria. At the in 1 exemplified device is a first criterion of the status of the direction indicators of the vehicle. If the direction indicator is set, it is assumed that the driver's line of sight can change frequently to observe the traffic situation. The timing is therefore increased as soon as the turn signal is set.
  • Also An increase in the time specification occurs at low vehicle speeds. At high speeds, such as on highways, will on the other hand, the time limit is shortened, as these rides are special Require attention.
  • In addition, information from the navigation system can affect the timing. It can be, for example, information Act about the street environment. If the vehicle is traveling on a country road, a higher time limit is granted than when driving in city traffic. If the navigation system provides the information that you pass at a children's playground or a school, the time limit can be shortened. When driving in an industrial area, however, often higher time limits and less attention of the driver can be accepted.
