Abstract: Various methods are being considered to prevent driver’s drowsiness. Recently, a method for preventing driver’s drowsiness by measuring physical changes such as electromyogram (EMG), electrocardiogram (ECG), and electroencephalogram (EEG) has been considered. In this paper, we proposed simple EMG sensor system for preventing driver’s drowsiness with radio frequency (RF) wireless power transmission method. It is designed to reduce the disturbance to the driver because it is supplied with continuous RF power. Also, we have analyzed the body position suitable for determining the degree of drowsiness by measuring the EMG signals at various body positions. From the measured EMG signal at various parts of the body, the wrist area is the most sensitive to driver’s drowsiness by spectrum analysis.
