Scientists around the world are working on anti-sleep glasses also known as drowsiness detection glasses as they can be integrated with modern vehicles. It works by monitoring several parameters, such as steering patterns, lane deviations, and driver behavior, to detect signs of drowsiness.

If glasses detect driver sleeping, it quickly triggers an alert, as it works on algorithms to analyze factors like eye movement, and facial expressions.
