A major share of accidents happening today is categorised under drunk and drive accidents. Attempts to curb these accidents are limited to manual checking of drivers and awareness programs, which is evidently not enough or stringent. We propose a system where the driver's face is captured in thermal image spectrum and is first recognised using facial recognition, then classified as drunk or sober. The former is done using a deep learning tool that is Convolution Neural Network and the latter is done using Gaussian Mixture Model along with Fischer Linear Discriminant for dimensionality reduction. Post the facial recognition, we will be using capillary junction points on faces to determine difference in blood temperature thus allowing us to classify them as drunk or not. © 2019 IEEE.
