The eye's blinking is a significant indicator of the sleepiness. The existing systems of blink detection and sleepiness analysis require usually to fix camera on spectacle frame or a special helmet that is not convenient and can affect the obtained result. In this paper, the infrared camera-based contact-less system is proposed to evaluate the human's sleepiness. The infrared light switching is used to detect the pupil in each frame and, as a result, the blink event. The active pan-tilt unit is used to make possible free head movements. The algorithm is pointed out to process the camera frames in order to distinguish the involuntary blinks from voluntary ones. Preliminary experimental tests are shown with the intent to validate the proposed hardware and software system pointed out.
