A novel driver’s status estimation system based on driver’s behavior in autonomous driving scene. To monitor the driver status is very important to ensure that he/she stays proper condition during driving. Healthcare monitoring system in driving time and many other health centers has experienced significant growth, and portable healthcare monitoring systems with emerging technologies are becoming of great concern to many countries worldwide nowadays. Smart health monitoring devices determine the health condition i.e. heart beat rate of the pulse, respiratory rate, the position of the body and other things by using sensors. Whenever the sensor values are not in the range of threshold value, the GPS module determines the location and this information is sent through GSM to the particular person. All these sensor operations are controlled by microcontroller.
