Driving Distraction Analysis by ECG Signals: An Entropy Analysis
This paper presents a novel method in driving distraction analysis: entropy analysis of ECG signals. ECG signals were recorded continuously while 15 drivers were driving with a simulator. Mental computation task was employed as driving distraction. Sample entropy and power spectrum entropy of drivers. ECG signals while they were driving with and without distraction were derived. The result indicated that entropy of drivers ECG signals was sensitive to driving distraction and were potential significant metrics in driving distraction measurement.
