The latest technology associated with Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) have been designed with the aim to minimize the numbers of person injury in road accidents and improve the overall road safety. The driver behavior is one major concern in many accidents in HK urban road links. In particular, the driver's attitudes, such as fatigue, drowsiness and concentration are the major causes to road accidents. It will affect the driver's ability and decisions in properly controlling their vehicles. Very often, this kind of driver distraction is particularly obvious when driving after 2 to 3 hours from most research sources. In the traffic data sourced from Transport Department of HKSAR, around 82% of the personal injury in road accidents belongs to the driver's fault. This paper used the latest technology and applied it to a group of transport vehicles, i.e. taxi. The objective is set up to monitor, record and analyze the fatigue and drowsiness situation of drivers by means of advanced AI system, facial recognition detection system (the sensors) and early warning devices (LDWS) via ADAS technology. The result will be used to give real time early warning and subsequent analysis for the transport operators or researchers for better and safer management of their transport fleets. The system aimed to have a good precaution and protection on all road users, including drivers, passengers and pedestrians. In turn, it largely saves our community resources, such as the medical and social services consumed on treating the injured persons.
