【従来の技術】[Prior art]

最近、乗用車に居眠り防止装置を備えたものが開発された。この種の装置は運 転者の目の動きを監視するカメラと、運転者の目の開閉動作から運転者の居眠り を判断する居眠り判断回路を備える電子装置と、この電子装置に接続した警報発 生手段と、覚醒効果の高い香料を発する香り発生手段とより構成されている。こ の種の居眠り防止装置は、運転者が運転中、居眠りを生じた場合先ず前記カメラ が運転者の目の動きの変化を察知しそのまま居眠り判断回路を備える電子装置が 作動しこれに接続する警報発生手段が鳴り、運転者に注意を促し、これと同時に 覚醒効果のある香料が放出されて運転者の眼を覚まし居眠りによる事故を未然に 防止するものであった。 Recently, passenger cars have been developed with drowsiness prevention devices. This type of device is a camera that monitors the movement of the eyes of the driver, an electronic device equipped with a drowsiness determination circuit that determines the driver's drowsiness based on the opening / closing motion of the driver's eyes, and an alarm connected to this electronic device. It is composed of a live means and a scent generating means for emitting a fragrance having a high awakening effect. In this kind of drowsiness prevention device, when the driver drows while driving, the camera first detects the change in the eye movement of the driver, and the electronic device equipped with a drowsiness judgment circuit is activated and connected to it. The alarm generating means sounded to alert the driver, and at the same time, the fragrance with a wakefulness effect was released to wake up the driver's eyes and prevent accidents due to drowsiness.

【0003】 又、従来一般の運送用トラックとか一般車輌等に於ては、運転中の居眠りを感 知し運転者に衝撃等の刺激を与えて居眠りを促し、眠気を覚ます格別な手段が装 備されていなかったので、眠気を生ずると車窓を開たり、クーラーの送風を強め たり或は眠気を覚すためにガムをかんだり、眠気防止用のドリンク剤を飲んだり して居眠りによる車輌事故の防止を図った。[0003] In addition, in a conventional general transportation truck or general vehicle, a special means for detecting drowsiness during driving and stimulating the driver with a shock or the like to promote drowsiness and awakening drowsiness is provided. Since it was not equipped, when a drowsiness occurs, the car window is opened, the cooler's air is intensified, the gum is chewed to awaken the drowsiness, the drink agent for drowsiness prevention is taken, and the vehicle accident caused by a drowsiness. To prevent this.

【0004】 しかし、前者の居眠り防止装置は、高価な目の動きを監視するカメラとか、居 眠り判断回路を備える電子装置、覚醒効果のある香料の発生装置を使用するので 、装置全体が高価化し容易に装備することができない問題点があり、又、警報発 生とか覚醒用の香料の発生程度では脳を刺激させて確実に眠気を覚すことができ ないので、居眠りによる事故を完全に防ぐことはできないものであった。 又、後者の車窓を開けたり、クーラーの送風強化、ガムやドリンク剤の使用程 度ではこれ又確実に居眠り防止を図るもときできないので、応々にして追突事故 や接触事故、人身事故等を起す問題点があった。However, since the former drowsiness prevention device uses a camera for monitoring expensive eye movements, an electronic device having a drowsiness judgment circuit, and a device for generating a fragrance having a wakefulness effect, the entire device becomes expensive. There is a problem that it can not be easily equipped, and since it is not possible to surely drowsiness by stimulating the brain with alarm generation or fragrance for awakening, it is possible to completely prevent accidents due to drowsiness It was impossible. In addition, if you open the car window of the latter, strengthen the air flow of the cooler, and use the gum and drinks to prevent snoozing, you will not be able to prevent drowsiness, so it may cause a rear-end collision, contact accident, personal injury, etc. There was a problem.

【考案が解決しようとする課題】[Problems to be solved by the device]

本考案は、前記した従来の課題を解消することを目的とするものでその目的と するところは、配線中に、車輌用ハンドルの握持部に設けた弱電触感手段を接続 し、この弱電触感手段に車輌後部に設けた後続車への合図用の発光手段を接続す ると共に、この配線を電源に接続した弱電触感手段の電気衝撃力を運転者の頭脳 に軽いショックを与え運転中に生じる居眠りを覚ます程度の衝撃力とすることに より安価な装置で然かも居眠り防止の効果を確実に高めることのできる車輌用居 眠り防止装置の提供にある。 The present invention is intended to solve the above-mentioned conventional problems. The purpose of the present invention is to connect a weak electric tactile sensation means provided in a grip portion of a vehicle handle during wiring to connect the weak electric tactile sensation. The light emitting means for signal to the following vehicle provided at the rear of the vehicle is connected to the means, and the electric shock force of the weak electric tactile means connecting this wiring to the power source gives a slight shock to the brain of the driver and occurs during driving. The purpose of the present invention is to provide a vehicle drowsiness prevention device that can surely enhance the drowsiness prevention effect with a less expensive device by making the impact force to wake up the drowsiness.
